Woman claiming she’s Madeleine McCann ‘enjoying’ LA as she learns to ‘let go’

A Polish woman who believes she could be missing Brit Madeleine McCann has flown to the US with her spokesperson – “Persian Medium” Fia Johansson.

Julia Wendell is “enjoying her new lifestyle” in California, Dr Johansson says, as the woman is “getting into a healthy lifestyle both mentally and physically”.

It’s not entirely clear why Julia is in Los Angeles, with some reports alleging that she is to undergo DNA testing to establish once and for all whether her claim of being the Leicester-born tot are true.

Dr Johansson took a number of photos of Julie out in LA with a series of captions with one stating how she is helping the 21-year-old learn to "let go of the past and live in the moment.

It’s also possible that Julia has relocated to LA on safety grounds. The 21-year-old has received ”countless threats and hate mail", with one online troll allegedly placing a $48,000 bounty on her head.

Julia has closed down her social media accounts in response to the repeated violent threats.

However, speaking through Dr Johansson’s Instagram account ,she said “thanks for the extra protection USA. I love you USA”.

"I love my country," Dr Johansson added, writing, "There's safety and security. The care about me and Julia at the moment is very high".

She also warned that there could be legal action against the people that have made threats against Julia.

“We’ve officially filed a report with law enforcement taking into account all the threats made online, documenting every account and individual associated with disseminating threats and falsehoods regarding Julia's case and status,” the Instagram story said.

Julia’s claims have sparked a major rift with her family in Poland, with her mother refusing to consider requests for a DNA test.

Earlier this week, Dr Johansson shared images of Julia playing the piano at a property in Los Angeles and claimed that they were "getting the truth" of the mystery of Julia’ origins.

Kate and Gerry McCann have yet to make an official comment on Julia’ claims but a source close to the couple told reporters: "The family are taking no chances, they are willing to look at all leads. It is important they look at all of the factors, the girl does look similar. There’s no disputing that."
