DNA from Queenstown's 'Madeleine' to go to UK

Post  matthew on Tue 5 Feb - 16:31

New Zealand police have obtained a DNA sample from a young girl people had thought to be Madeleine McCann, at the request of Scotland Yard.

The request follows a New Year's Eve sighting of the girl in Queenstown. It was not the first time her striking resemblance to the missing young British girl had been reported to police.

Detective Senior Sergeant Kallum Croudis, of Dunedin, confirmed police would be sending a DNA profile of the girl to British police investigating Madeleine's disappearance.

"Police will be sending a DNA profile to British police ... to confirm the identity of a girl who has been mistaken for Madeleine by a member of the public," Mr Croudis said.

DNA sampling was a conclusive way to establish identity, he said.

The DNA profile was given voluntarily to police. The results of the test are not expected to be available for weeks.

"The results of this process will not be known for some time," he said.

Madeleine McCann went missing from the Ocean Club complex in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007 just before her fourth birthday. She was on holiday with her parents Kate and Gerry and siblings Sean and Amelie.

Queenstown hit international headlines after a retailer reported serving a man, and a girl who bore a striking resemblance to the missing Madeleine, on New Year's Eve.

The sighting sparked a five-day police investigation.

On January 4, Queenstown police issued a statement saying they had identified the girl seen in Queenstown and were "absolutely satisfied' she was not Madeleine.

Detective Sergeant Brian Cameron declined to disclose any details about the identified child, stating only that this was not the first occasion someone had contacted police remarking on the similarity between the two girls.

At the time, Mr Cameron would not disclose the methods used by police to identify the child.

It is not the first time a child has been DNA-tested in relation to the case of the missing British girl.

In 2011, a young girl spotted in India with a Belgian man and French woman was tested and was also found not to be Madeleine.

A spokeswoman at the British High Commission in Wellington would not comment and said all matters relating to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann should be directed through the commission's London office.

The London office has not responded to questions asked by The Southland Times last week.

i find it unbelieveable that dna testing is being undertaken. surely if the childs dna matches that of her parents there is no need for this, oh and whgere did they get the sample of madeleines dna from to test it against. and why now. this sighting was new year:s eve, oh i just answered by own question. anything to take attention from the courts. where and who did this snippet of information emanate from please? ji,o

If they know isn't Madeleine, why are they sending a DNA sample?



On January 4, Queenstown police issued a statement saying they had identified the girl seen in Queenstown and were "absolutely satisfied' she was NOT Madeleine.

Official Find Madeleine Campaign Graham Perry Understand your concerns, but the NZ police have assured Scotland Yard and Madeleine's parents that the child is NOT Madeleine. We have to trust that the NZ police have done a thorough job of determining it is not Madeleine.

The DNA profile was given voluntarily to police.

Are the child's parents equipped with a DNA profile?

Seems really easy, just sent the newspaper the piece you want printed and it's done.

The whole story about the Indian sighting and the DNA is a total lie. There was no girl, the police there knew nothing about it and there was no DNA sample taken. There was a lot of publicity at a useful time for TM, that's all. Seems to happen a lot, they're really lucky that way.

Gerry has a strange perception about DNA for a doctor as he's stated that of course there was DNA of Maddie in the car because theirs was there.
Errrm, it doesn't quite work like that Dr. McCann, just as well it's not your field of expertise.

These are replies on twitter from the reporter ... Brooke Gardiner
@ZQNBrooke

I got these stories by asking the authorities questions myself - no one is "behind" them

Yes same child. Police would not disclose how they had identified the child on Jan 4 but have now confirmed a DNA test is underway

NZ Police "absolutely satisfied" girl not Madeleine on Jan 4 but Scotland Yard has since requested a DNA test - that's all I know

NZ Cops: We've already checked her out thoroughly - she's not Madeleine.

SY Cops: We don't believe you. Send the DNA!


How very disrespectful towards their colleagues abroad.

It sounds as though the family are so pissed off with having their child constantly mistaken for Maddie that they have voluntarily handed over the DNA, just so that the whole thing can be laid to rest, for once and for all.
