BRITISH police say a DNA test has ruled out the possibility a New Zealand girl is missing British girl Madeleine McCann. The girl's family volunteered a DNA sample to be sent to Scotland Yard earlier this month, following the most recent report she may be Madeleine.
"We've had the results back from the DNA test and can now confirm the girl is not Madeleine McCann," a spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police to NZ Newswire
New Zealand police launched an investigation last month when a Queenstown retailer became suspicious of a man and a young girl, who bore a resemblance to Madeleine
Madeleine was nearly four when she vanished from her family's Portuguese holiday apartment in 2007.
Her parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, have never abandoned their campaign to find their eldest daughter, who would now be nine.
There have been previous reported sightings of Madeleine in Dunedin, Milton, Alexandra and Queenstown. Sightings have also been reported in Sweden, Belgium, India and Australia.
