Maria is convinced of her own happiness because she saw the familiar spot in the eyes of the girl, a condition that occurs in 1 in 10,000 children. “It was three or four years ago. I don’t remember exactly when, but it was at the Apolonia supermarket in Galé. To my right was a girl who spoke German to someone else. When I looked her in the eye, I was absolutely sure what I saw. ”
According to the retired teacher, the girl’s eyes were light-colored with the same spot as Maddie. “The girl I saw was about 13 to 14 years old. Unfortunately I realized a few seconds after they left the supermarket who owned this face. I made the link, but unfortunately it was too late. ”
The woman says she still looked to find her, but that was not the case. She did not report the incident to the police. After Christian Brückner was named as a possible suspect, the woman stepped forward. She also reported to the McCann family lawyer. A spokesperson said that the police are investigating the statement.
The supermarket regularly erases the images from the security cameras, reports The Sun, so there is no footage available of the day in question.
Since Maddie went missing in 2007, some 9,000 reports have been received from 101 countries from people claiming to have seen the girl.
