Madeleine McCann has been missing for four long years. While on holiday in Portugal with her family, the then three-year-old girl was reported missing. Her parents believe she was kidnapped and they have spearheaded a desperate global search for her for the last four-years. But it looks like their searching could possibly be over. Word is Madeleine McCann might have been found in India, and now her parents Gerry and Kate McCann are waiting for confirmation of her identity.
How did this all go down? And could it really be Madeline?
Well, it all started when a British tourist was in India’s northern city of Leh, which is right by the Himalyas. The tourist along with a couple of other witnesses saw the resemblance between the girl in Leh and the much publicized photographs of the young missing Madeline. An American tourist got involved and they tried to take the girl from the couple who claim they are the girl’s biological parents. As things got more and more heated, the police arrived and made copies of the parents passports and reportedly got DNA samples from the family. I’m sure this was a jarring situation for the couple – a Belgian man and a French woman – especially if their claims are correct and the young girl with them really is their biological daughter.
Madeline’s parents stated, “Our private investigators are aware of the reports from India over the weekend about a possible sighting of Madeleine.” They added, “We are liaising with the Indian authorities over the incident and await the results of the DNA test.”
But this is just one hundreds of supposed sighting of Madeline since she disappeared. The family is reportedly, not holding their breath. They don’t want to get their hopes up to yet again have them not materialize.
Let’s hope that at some point the McCann family finds Madeleine or at least gets some kind of closure.
