A woman has taken to social media as she believes that she could potentially be Madeleine McCann, and has provided her evidence.

Madeleine disappeared in 2007 at the age of three while the family was vacationing in Praia da Luz, Portugal.

Her parents were dining at a nearby restaurant when she vanished.

The case gained global attention, with authorities in both the UK and Portugal investing millions in the search for the missing toddler.

Despite these efforts, 17 years later, Madeleine remains missing.

In 2023, a woman named Julia Wandelt captured intrigue after she claimed that she was the missing British child.

Wandelt's journey began on Instagram, using the handle @iammadeleinemccann, where she sought to uncover her true identity.

Appearing on the Dr. Phil show, she explained her initial suspicions that her mother might not be her biological parent, prompting her to research missing children cases.

Her search led her to the high-profile disappearance of Madeleine McCann, and she immersed herself in online communities dedicated to solving the mystery.

However, DNA test results later confirmed Wandelt's Polish heritage, conclusively proving she was not Madeleine.

While the hunt for Madeleine goes on, another woman has taken to TikTok to provide evidence that she could be the missing girl.

Under the handle @fashionbyflore, Florence Harrington is seeking to learn more about her identity.

She started posting about her theories three days ago from the time of writing (May 24), claiming that everything in her life "fits" with Madeleine's story and that she is adopted and never met her real parents.

She wrote: "Im from manchester and grew up there with my adopted parents, i was about 10 when i got adopted theres no pictures of me when i was little only the ones when my adoptive parents took them.

"Im 20 years old my birthday was also may 12th and i was born the same year as madeline according to my adoptive parents."

Interestingly, she appears to have the same eye condition as Madeleine, known as coloboma of the iris.

Another part of her evidence is an e-fit of a woman who is suspected to be involved in the kidnapping of the young British Girl.

Florence believes that this woman looks the same as her adopted mother, who she claimed "abused" her.

She has also shown pictures of her supposed childhood bedroom, while also asking people to stop sending her hate messages due to her beliefs.

Julia Wandelt dealt with the same issues, and addressing the online abuse, Wandelt said: "I knew that there will be people who will not believe me or hate me, but I didn't expect that I will get death threats, for example.

"It was something that I don't understand. People knew that I was abused and they all knew that I deal with depression.

"I was trying to be strong even when people said, you should die. You should be raped. You should be killed. You should be murdered. You shouldn't exist in this world. You're a b****."

When asked if she had any regrets, Wandelt responded: "I would never go on social media. It can destroy you."
