A woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann "isn't lying", according to a private investigator helping her uncover the truth.
Julia Wendell, the Polish woman who claims she might be the missing child, appeared on American chat show Dr Phil on Monday (March 27) to tell her story and present "evidence" for her case.
And psychologist and self-proclaimed psychic Dr Fia Johansson, who has been helping Julia in her search for answers, was by her side throughout the episode to back up her claims.

“I tried to ask her certain questions in a different way. Every single answer came back exactly the same," Dr Johansson told the TV host.
"When we [make] up stories normally we may gonna have some changes in the middle of it because that’s not a true story.
"All these stories that she said about those memories, those thoughts, those images, those visions, it was exactly the same. So to me, I don’t believe that she’s lying about the memories or visions.
"I believe she remembers things, she’s trying to connect with those thoughts, and she’s trying to navigate them, that, 'is it really possible that I was there at that time'."

The show also saw Julia recall her earliest memory, which she says is the only one she has from before the age of eight.
It has been claimed the recollection is similar to descriptions of the place Madeleine was taken from on a family holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007.
"Before eight I have only this one early memory with beach and water, like sea or ocean and there were turtles and children try[ing] to catch turtles and take them [in] their hands," the 21-year-old explained.
She added: "And I remember light-coloured buildings, like white or a very light colour… sunlight on this building."
"[At] three years old, it’s very hard to remember things," Dr Johansson continued.
"But some backlash from [the] subconscious mind, […] it could come back with some trauma."
Julia is now in the US waiting for the results of three DNA samples and a genetics test, which will be the first step in determining whether or not she is the missing child.
In a live video on Instagram last week, Dr Johansson explained if Julia's genetics test shows she is British, they'll compare her DNA sample to one from Madeleine McCann.
"I am really badly waiting for and checking every day the status of it," the private investigator said of the test results.
Last month, Julia's family issued a plea for her to "stop", saying it was "obvious" she wasn't Madeleine.
In a statement published on behalf of the family by the Polish missing persons' organisation Missing Years Ago, they said: "The internet won't forget, and it's obvious that Julia isn't [Madeleine].
"We are devastated at this current situation."
