The silence of the family of the woman who asserts to be Madeleine McCann has been broken, expressing their profound distress. Julia Faustyna, a 21-year-old, has gained widespread attention after making the claim that she is Maddie, who vanished during a family holiday in Portugal in May 2007, triggering an extensive international search endeavor. Presently, Julia’s relatives in Poland have disclosed evidence that disproves her identity.
The Polish organization Absent Years Ago, dedicated to locating missing individuals, has published a statement on behalf of the family via Facebook. The statement conveys the following:
“For our kin, Julia is unequivocally our cherished daughter, granddaughter, sibling, niece, cousin, and step-niece. We possess cherished memories and a collection of photographs. These very photographs are currently in Julia’s possession, as she surreptitiously acquired them, along with her birth certificate and several hospital records, from our familial abode.

“We made concerted efforts to fathom every aspect of Julia’s circumstances. Countless therapeutic interventions, medications, consultations with psychologists and psychiatrists were all sought on Julia’s behalf. She was never forsaken.
“Julia’s threats towards our residence, her fabrications, manipulations, and online activities—we have borne witness to them all. In an attempt to curb these behaviors, we implored her to desist.”
The family disclosed that Julia has vacated the familial abode and has adamantly declined mental health treatment. Shedding light on her motives, they added, “Julia once harbored aspirations of becoming a songstress and a model. She has perpetually yearned for fame. The current predicament has granted her a million followers.
“We apprehensively anticipate the inevitable consequences Julia will face. It is evident that Julia is not Maddie, as the vast reaches of the internet will eternally remember.
“Our hearts are shattered by the present state of affairs.
“According to Julia, her belief that she is Maddie originated ‘a few months ago’ when she purportedly heard ‘something’ from her grandmother.
“The young woman has attested to fragmented recollections of her childhood, claiming to have suffered exploitation at the hands of a German pedophile who was once considered a suspect in Maddie’s disappearance.
“Moreover, she alleges that Kate and Gerry McCann, Maddie’s parents, have beseeched her to undergo a DNA test.
“A source closely affiliated with the McCann family, as cited by The Daily Star, states, ‘The family is not willing to leave any stone unturned and is committed to thoroughly investigating all leads.
“‘It is of utmost importance that they consider every factor, given the striking resemblance between the two young women. There is no room for doubt.’
“In an official statement, the family asserts that Julia has consistently rebuffed treatment for her psychological afflictions.”
