The Polish woman repeatedly claiming to be Madeleine McCann – despite negative DNA test results – has been reported to police over explicit images of children that were allegedly found on her phone. 

This morning, news broke that police have seized a phone belonging to Julia Wendell, who went viral on social media for claiming she was missing British toddler Madeleine McCann.  

It has now been revealed that Dr Fia Johansson, a private investigator and psychic medium who brought Wendell to the US, has handed over the phone to Californian police after filing a report alleging a phone Wendell had left behind with her in California after the DNA test appeared to contain explicit images of children.

Dr Johansson told The Sun: ‘Police are taking this very seriously and have assured me that a full investigation will be done,’ and added that Orange County police have told her the phone would be passed on to law enforcement in Germany and Poland.

Wendell has denied these claims and said she already spoke to police in Poland about this. 

Julia Wendell, 21, appeared on the US show Dr Phil where she said she started suspecting she was the missing British girl in June last year, without providing any proof to back up her claims

The probe comes after it has emerged that the woman, Julia Wendell, 21 (pictured), is planning a second DNA test after the first one proved she is not the missing British toddler who vanished while on a family holiday in Portugal in 2007

Wendell also spoke to The Sun and said: ‘I didn’t have child pornography on my phone. I am not a pedophile. I am a victim of a pedophile.’

After Dr Johansson announced the negaitve DNA results in an Instagram post on April 4, she revealed to The Sun: ‘Julia has had a difficult childhood, we know she has been sexually abused, she has been very open about this, and my investigation uncovered legal records proving that this was true.’

The phone was seized after it emerged Wendell is planning a second DNA test after the first one proved she is not the missing British toddler who vanished while on a family holiday in Portugal in 2007.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department reportedly contacted police in the Polish city of Wroclaw to tell them they had seized a phone believed to be Wendell’s.

While the Sheriff’s Department confirmed that they seized the phone, they decline to provide more details about the investigation. 

The phone was reportedly handed over to police voluntarily. 

Department spokesperson Sgt. Mike Woodroof told RadarOnline: ‘We are not going to make any comments about the case. 

‘Our investigation is taking a deep look into it and we’re going to let them do their investigative duties and then from that point let the judicial system take over – if it needs to.’ 

Four days ago, Dr Johansson posted an authorization form for Orange County’s Sheriff’s Department on her Instagram account with the caption: ‘Your Eye Investigation’s registered private investigator Dr Fia Johansson and CEO and Licensed Private Investigator Brad Perkins at this moment would like to mention the following statement that there will be no comment or discussion at this time or moving forward concerning the active ongoing investigation with Orange County Sheriffs Dept & special public affairs division due to protocol and the sensitivity and nature of the intelligence that has been gathered and rendered.

‘It’s an active investigation and DA will not comment out of concern for the safety of the victims.’

Despite the timing of the form Dr Johansson posted four days ago and the allegations she made today, it is unclear at this point if the forms, which are marked as ‘denied’, are connected to the allegations.

Wendell made headlines around the world earlier this year after she uploaded her spurious theories on social media with the username ‘@IamMadeleineMcCann’.

Her claims led to Wendell even appearing on talk show Dr Phil after being flown across the Atlantic by American media personality Dr Fia Johansson to discuss the far-fetched possibility.

But finally she was persuaded to take a DNA test and the results proved conclusively that she had no relation to Madeleine, after which Wendell returned to Poland to live with her father.

This was before a MailOnline investigation earlier this month revealed that Wendell had previously claimed to be three other missing girls.

Last week Wendell said in a statement: ‘It wasn’t my intention to bring sadness or any other negative emotion to anyone, especially to McCann’s family.’

Wendell also issued a 17-page statement in which she apologised for the ‘sadness’ she caused the McCanns, of Rothley, Leicestershire – but then bizarrely denied that she had ever claimed she was Madeleine.

Despite her apology, Wendell has now doubled down on her claims and said on Instagram she wanted to do a second DNA test: ‘I want to do this because I just want to do this and I don’t even have to explain why but I think everyone knows why I want to do this. 

‘When the results come I will let you know everything.’

She also claimed she is being ‘supported’ by officials and people in law enforcement.

Dr Johansson said Wendell not accepting the DNA result was partially due to her past and being abused as a child, but also added to The Sun: ‘Then on top of that she felt she was being ignored by her mother, who refused to take the DNA test which could have stopped all this from the beginning and given her the closure she needs.’

Dr Johansson added that as a psychologist, she could understand why Wendell didn’t want to believe the DNA results, as she ‘didn’t want to believe her mother was her real mother’.
