DNA tests have confirmed that a girl mistakenly identified in New Zealand as Madeleine McCann is not her, police said.

UK officers requested a DNA sample from the girl, but tests proved it was not her.

Madeleine was nearly four when she disappeared from her family’s holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal’s Algarve in May 2007.
