(Newser) – Turns out a lookalike in New Zealand is not the long-missing Madeleine McCann. The DNA of a Queenstown girl was sent to Scotland Yard for testing, despite local police's certainty that she wasn't the British Maddy, who went missing in 2007. "Following a DNA submission, we are now satisfied the girl identified in New Zealand is not Madeleine McCann," London police said, according to the New Zealand Herald.
