Strange the scum doesn't make any mention of Madeleine.

Dare I ask how this girl has been existing so far ? Money ? Food ? And she speaks English, so could answer questions ?
Are we going to see every street urchin/waif and stray of around that age 'possibly MM'?

It's that time of year when these conscience pricking stories come out isn't it.

The article has been updated and changed slightly then since I posted it on the missing people thread.

The girl the internet thinks is Madeleine McCann:


Where on the internet do they think it's Madeleine McCann...?

A late teenage girl with hair that is anything but blonde - well of course there's a chance she could be Madeleine McCann.......

Silly season approaching so expect more of the same.

Maybe someone could ask her in English where she's from and how sadly she ended up on the streets. And maybe the DM could post up the response tomorrow.

Oh, I sent a reply and it told me the thread wasn't there so I am trying again !!

Anyway (after a glass or 3 or wine 'cos I'm suffering from a lurgy)   =  any idea who these 'several people might be ??


Missing Persons of America wrote on a website page dedicated to 'Maria': 'There have been several people that think it may be Madeline McCann who would be 13 now.

eta - just to add, when I read "appeal verdict due" as the thread title I suddenly tense. pale

.... Apart from looking absolutely nothing like MM, the DM say the girl is 'thought to be in her late teens'.

Can someone remind the DM that MM (if she was alive but sadly isn't) would've been 13. And not late teens.

Sorry bluebell, I caused a bit of confusion by merging two topics which had been set up for the same story - and what a story this one is!

The 'several' people, Bluebell, are probably the McCanns themselves.

Any opportunity to link Madeleine's name to that of any missing child. Regardless of sex, colour, age.. etc.

It shoehorns Madeleine into the papers. Which is just the way they like it.

IMO etc,

Where is her eye fleck? Has she had a nose job? Is she wearing coloured contacts? Desperation anyone?

I don't know who put this load of nonsense together - it consists mainly of lingering photos of the McCanns; the one of Kate at around 4.30 is enough to curdle milk.

Yesterday the Sun were the first to break this story about the mystery English girl homeless in Rome, probably in her late teens/early twenties.

They forgot to include 'Madeleine McCann' anywhere in the article.

They've since updated it:

It is indeed twaddle. A simple DNA test would solve this in quick order. Instead we get rehashed speculation and a cynical attempt to sell papers.

The media has had it. Probably following a link on here(!) I stumbled onto the Sun's website the other day. Jesus. I thought I'd accidentally got The National Enquirer, or something. The main stories were about some woman having sex with a dog, and how WW3 is starting tomorrow.

That is a problem I've encountered, unreorganised. Sometimes there are links on comparatively tame stories to some real horrors.

There was one today about the lynching of a suspected paedophile - i.e. someone who hadn't even been convicted. I closed the link quickly but I still have an image in my head that will take a while to get rid of.

I think we can assume not, PMR!

Even when there have been what appear to be credible sightings, they haven't bothered.

When I'm in the big cities like Manchester/Leeds etc then I often pass homeless people on the streets. Mainly young lads in there late 20's.

Due to being 'out of it' then most of these wouldn't know there own name or where they're from or how they got there etc.

This non-story is a bit like me going to the press and saying I spotted Ben Needham in Manchester City Ctr. He had blonde hair, mid to late 20s but didn't know where he was from etc, so it could be Ben.

This girl in question 'Maria', is probably a foreign student or a traveller taking a gap year. Fell out with her friends and decided to rough it for a few nights.

Or it's probably a complete hoax. A bit like the 'Piano man' from a few years back.
