Yes, Madeleine McCann is still missing in case you weren't aware. The latest attempt at alienating the family of a random blonde child has failed with a DNA test not linking a New Zealand girl to the long-missing British child. A few weeks ago it made news that a young girl in New Zealand was submitting DNA to be tested because she's been mistakenly identified as Maddie at least two times. This is undoubtedly an annoyance for both the child and her innocent family who have been ensnared by the mass hysteria displayed by those who are rabidly attached to the missing girl's story. KFDM News confirmed on Feb. 13, 2013 that the DNA test is not a match, and that is not in the least bit surprising.
Madeleine McCann vanished nearly six years ago while her family was on a vacation in Portugal. Her parents Kate and Gerry McCann carelessly left the toddler alone with two other small children while they went to a dinner with friends. When the parents returned the child was gone, according to them. However, there have been numerous reports of evidence that Maddie was killed in her parents' vacation flat. There have even been forensic tests done on samples taken from their apartment, only to reveal challenging results. The level of evidence indicating the child's death was so severe that Portugal officials had at one point named the McCanns suspects in her disappearance. But alas, they are free in the UK and marching on to "spread awareness" of Madeleine's disappearance, making money along the way.
Was Madeleine McCann murdered in her parent's apartment in Portugal or was she kidnapped? Whatever the true answer is it's unlikely that any of these sightings of her are accurate. The hysteria that grips people during high profile cases like these always spawn so called sightings, but more often than not these cases don't end in such a manner that the missing person is located alive. That's sad but true.
All that matters at this point is that this girl in New Zealand is not Maddie. Perhaps now people will stop harassing her and her family in the name of supporting the McCann family.
