Madeleine McCann – Reportedly Found In India

Investigators searching for Madeleine McCann are examining a report from India that a young girl matching her description was spotted in the market of a Himalayan city.

The Chandigarh Tribune said that a British woman had seen a youngster bearing a remarkable likeness to Madeleine who disappeared four years ago. She would now be eight years old.

Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for Madeleine’s parents Gerry and Kate McCann, said: ‘Our private investigators are aware of the reports from India over the weekend about a possible sighting of Madeleine.

‘We are liaising with the Indian authorities over the incident and await the results of the DNA test.’

The report in the Tribune said a British woman raised concerns with other tourists that they had found the missing girl.

At one point an American man is said to have tried to take the girl from the couple.

However the French woman and her Belgian husband, who had their passports copied by Leh Police, insist that they are the parents of the girl.

A spokesman for Leh police told the Chandigarh Tribune in India: ‘It all depends upon the evidence like DNA for which help from Madeleine’s parents and the British police was required.’

Madeleine was days short of her fourth birthday when she went missing on a family holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.

Maddie’s parents, Kate and Gerry McCann marked the fourth anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance privately with family and friends.

They recently launched a book about how she disappeared with proceeds from the book, entitled Madeleine, going towards the funding of their search for their daughter.

Despite a massive police investigation and huge publicity worldwide, she has not been found.

The official Portuguese inquiry into Madeleine’s disappearance was formally shelved in July 2008, although private detectives employed by the McCanns have continued the search.

  1. would like to be informed about this.
    many people have been told that maddie was found dead and they are doing tests on her body at this moment at time.
    would really like to know any more information.
    my sympathy still goes out to the family and friends of maddie.x

  2. No leah she was not found dead .. what was found was a young girl who looked similar to her.. but nothing came of it.. its not Madeleine.. so the prayers continue for her safe return..

  3. I hope they find her. It is such a sad story. The worst nightmare that a parent can go through is the disappearance of their child. I am having goosebumps even as I write this comment.

    • You know someone asked me the other day.. do you think she is still alive.? and all I can say there is nothing to prove otherwise.. so there is always hope… and as long as we keep praying for her safe return maybe god will hear us… all we want is an innocent child returned to her family, they have been punished enough for leaving her on her own…
