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.

No...its not April the 1st

This is disgusting. I hope the mccanns feel proud that they've treated another child dispicably.
What in invasion of that poor girls person as well as an abuse of her dignity.
What on earth is next? Shall we DNA every child in the world of a similar age.... After all if you have nothing to hide.... :

It's even more disgusting: the Leh sighting produced no girl at all. The Leh police had not been contacted and NO DNA TEST was done on the girl who was never seen by the police - neither were the parents.
This is a complete fabrication to justify this bit of publicity just at the time of the TB court case.

Someone should do a correlation study between events (which could engender negative publicity for RM) and spurious sightings.
A sighting is always ready for use to obliterate anti TM news.

Journalists don't check sources these days. I'll look the Leh sighting up. At least people who see it here will know.

DNA test to prove New Zealand girl is not Madeleine McCann

http://www.thisisleicestershire.co.uk/DNA-test-prove-New-Zealand-girl-Madeleine-McCann/story-18088893-detail/story.html#axzz2KJ7LUeSQ

Friday, February 08, 2013Leicester MercuryFollow
A DNA sample from a girl in New Zealand has been sent to British police to quash the suggestion she is Madeleine McCann.
It was reported in New Zealand media that the girl has been mistaken for Madeleine more than once, because she has a similar mark in one of her eyes.

Madeleine McCann went missing in the Algarve, Portugal, in May 2007
However, Scotland Yard said the girl was not a line of inquiry and the force had requested the sample to confirm statements made by New Zealand police that she is not Madeleine.

Rothley youngster Madeleine was nearly four when she vanished in the Algarve, Portugal, in May 2007.


Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said her parents, Kate and Gerry, would not be commenting on the girl in New Zealand.
Meanwhile, a man who claims he is campaigning to find out what happened to Madeleine has appeared before a judge accused of contempt of court.

Tony Bennett, of Harlow, Essex, had agreed in a High Court ruling not to publish allegations linking Kate and Gerry McCann to the disappearance of their daughter.
He appeared at the High Court in London on Tuesday and Wednesday. The BBC reported this was in relation to allegedly breaching the ruling 26 times.

The BBC said, Bennett wrote to David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May alleging Kate and Gerry McCann were involved in their daughter's disappearance, then published the letters.

According to the BBC, Adrienne Page, representing the McCanns said there was no complaint about Bennett writing the letters, just about the letters being published.
Bennett denies the breach

DNA test has proved that she isn't a New Zealand girl

Post  AnnaEsse on Fri 8 Feb - 17:40

Madeleine McCann remains missing after a DNA test has proved that she isn't a New Zealand girl. This really isn't that surprising, but it seems that authorities will continue disrupting the lives of other families at the whims of hysterical people who insist that they've spotted her. How many more times will this happen?

The one thing that makes the New Zealand girl stand out from other sightings, however, is the fact that one of her eyes possesses a rare trait that Maddie also had. This isn't the first time the girl has been falsely mistaken as being Madeleine McCann too!

It's sad that this case remains unsolved when officials in Portugal appeared to have such a strong hold on things in the first place. Was she ever really missing or did something horrible happen to her in the Algarve? Whatever the case may be, she's certainly not the New Zealand girl and she's not every other child who's been accused of being her. So what's next?

Thanks Anna, good stuff!

Questions, the right ones for a change, popping up all over the place it seems.
