Julia Faustyna: Mother of Polish woman claiming to be missing girl 'mortified' over 'fresh grief' for Madeleine McCann's parents

The mother of the Polish woman who claimed to be Madeleine McCann is "mortified" over the fresh grief her daughter has given the parents of the missing British girl.

Julia Faustyna, 22, who is also known as Julia Wendell and Julia Wandelt, gained worldwide attention after claiming she is the missing girl who disappeared during a family holiday in Portugal in 2007.

Last month, Faustyna submitted samples for three forensic tests to determine whether she has any ties to the McCann family ancestry.

Those results came back and proved she wasn't the missing British girl. 

"Julia's test results are back. We finally know the reality," Fia Johansson, a psychic social media star who offered to represent Faustyna as a spokesperson during her quest for answers, said in a statement posted to Instagram. 

"The test results revealed that she is 100 percent of Polish heart, with negligible influence from Lithuania and Russia. The DNA test results did not show any connection to British or even German roots."

Following the DNA results, Faustyna's mother Dorota Wandelt-Cholewinski is reportedly "beside herself" for the attention the case has brought to the family. 

A family friend said Faustyna's parents are hurt by the involvement of Dr Johnansson and want their daughter to get "the help she needs".

"It was clear from the beginning that Julia was not Madeleine and Dorota is furious this so-called doctor exploited the illness of a very young woman," a family friend told the UK's Daily Mail. 

"Julia just needs to be home with her family so that she can get the treatment that she needs and which will make the family happy. Dorota is mortified that all this publicity has caused fresh grief for the McCann family."

The Daily Mail also revealed Faustyna had previously claimed to be other missing children -  a German schoolgirl and a missing American toddler - in her teenage years and also contacted a Polish charity with other outlandish identity claims.

"Julia has messaged us twice to say she is a missing person, once to say she was German and once to say she was American," a spokesperson for the charity told the Daily Mail. 

"Neither were correct and we have been helping Julia's family as best we can because it's quite clear she is not very well and is constantly claiming to be people she isn't."

The McCann family broke their silence earlier this week in response to the DNA results. 

"There isn't anything to report at this time," a spokesman for Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann said.

"If and when there is, it will come from the Metropolitan Police."

McCann went missing from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal's Algarve in 2007.

Despite several extensive police investigations, which gained worldwide attention, very little information has been recovered about what happened to her after her abduction.
