If this child isn't Madeleine, could you imagine the distress the parents of the girl are feeling right now?

Tourists believe they have spotted Maddie in Northern India
Police in India have taken DNA swabs from a young girl they believe could be Madeleine McCann.
A group of people are believed to have spotted a youngster who looks like Maddie while on holiday in the north Indian city of Leh.
They tried to take the girl from a couple who said they were her parents, a French woman and her Belgian husband.
The British woman first saw them in a market in the city with the girl and when she raised concerns with other people they agreed.
An American woman tried to take the girl from them and and police were called who took their passports while they investigate the claims.
A spokesman for Leh police said: 'It all depends upon the evidence like DNA for which help from Madeleine's parents and the British police was required.
Madeleine was days short of her fourth birthday when she went missing on a family holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.
Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for Madeleine’s parents Gerry and Kate McCann, said: 'Our private investigators are aware of the reports from India over the weekend about a possible sighting of Madeleine.
'We are liaising with the Indian authorities over the incident and await the results of the DNA test.'

A lot of people will look extremely foolish, not to mention callous, if she comes back alive.

On topic, WTF?? What on earth were the tourists thinking essentially trying to snatch a child in public from her parents??

They saw a girl who they thought might look like an older version of Madeline McCann and tried to take her off her parents? Retards.

Bet you any money its not her. There has been far too much publicity and still is for that little girl to be walking around the streets.

There's a joke in there somewhere.

Well, hopefully it's her.

It should be easy enough to know it's her from the mark on her eye.
