    The report in the Tribune said a British woman raised concerns with other tourists that they had found the missing girl.

    At one point an American man is said to have tried to take the girl from the couple.

    However the French woman and her Belgian husband, who had their passports copied by Leh Police, insist that they are the parents of the girl.

    It would be wonderful if it was Madeleine but I don't think so. These people can have only a vague idea of how Madeleine looks now and there must be thousands and thousands of little girls who resemble a vague idea of what Madeleine could look like four years older.

    As far as I'm concerned, until the DNA confirms that it is Madeleine, this is just some unfortunate little girl who got accosted and frightened by an American man and parents who stayed to insist what they know the DNA will prove.

    The parents' representative is playing it down.

    McCann sighting denied

    1.51PM Thu Jul 28 2011
    The family of Madeleine McCann has played down a reported sighting of their missing daughter in India.

    Speaking to ITV News family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: "Nothing leads us to believe that this 'sighting' is any more credible than any others."

    Police were thought to be investigating after a British woman spotted a six-year-old girl who appeared to look like Madeleine in the city of Leh in the north of the country on Friday.

    and I was so hopeful. I can't imagine taking a child from a couple and demanding a DNA test based on looks. There has to be something else (ie, not being able to produce a birth certificate). Children would be tested all over based on tips!

    JMHO -- thanks. I certainly hope Madeleine is found soon.

    Exactly! What are the odds of another young girl resembling Madeline having the same eye defect? If this child does not have it, this family should not be put through this.

    WS does have the cold cases files, but Maddie's was pulled a LONG time ago for some exceptional reasons....a mod can explain the reasons, as I am not sure I know exactly.

    I think this is the article everyone seems to be quoting about the anonymous police official's words.

    http://www.tribuneindia.com/2011/20110724/main4.htm
    A local police official said there was worldwide alert for Madeleine and it would be a great honour for the Leh police to find the missing girl. “However, it all depends upon the evidence like DNA for which help from Madeleine’s parents and the British police was required.”
    "was required" seems to imply they asked and got help from the parents and the British police to resolve the issue. And if it's not true...? Strange.

    Anyway, I don't see why there would be any need for Madeleine's parents and the British police to be involved initially. Wouldn't testing the child and her parents be sufficient? If it turned out she was in fact their biological child, I don't see why they would need Madeleine's DNA at all. The fastest method could be to call the police in France or Belgium or wherever they live and ask them to confirm that this couple had this child before 2007.

    I don't know either but can take a guess. Pat Brown's book was banned from being sold on Amazon by the McCann's. I'm guessing it's either they're way or no way.

    Stories like this have become grotesque.

    Daily Mail is not exactly a paragon of journalistic standards...not seeing anything on the main news sites, is. msnbc, or the AP wire...anyone else?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    A regional Indian police chief told CNN that he knew nothing about the sighting, and dismissed reports of a possible DNA test on the girl. "We have not recovered any girl from Leh," said Abdul Gani Mir, deputy inspector general of police for central Kashmir and Leh. "I checked and re-checked from my officers on ground in Leh and they have categorically told me they have not recovered the girl."

    CNN: "There is no question of carrying out DNA when you don't have the girl. I checked and re-checked from my officers on ground in Leh and they have categorically told me they have not recovered the girl," Mir told CNN.
