McCann Hysteria Continues

I knew that something like this was going to happen. It was only a matter of time.

British couple tried to 'rescue' Maddy lookalike... from a Croatian football star and his model wife

When two British tourists spotted a woman leading a child with long blonde hair on the Croatian holiday island of Krk, they immediately thought it was Madeleine McCann.

The couple became even more convinced that the youngster was the missing Briton after secretly taking a couple of photographs.

So when the adult leading the child was not looking, the British woman grabbed the youngster's arm.

It was only then that she realised the child not only wasn't Madeleine, it wasn't even a little girl.

To make matters worse, the boy's father is a famous Croatian footballer and his mother - who was with him at the time - is a renowned glamour model.

Dino Drpic, who is a defender for Dinamo Zagreb and has several international caps, and his wife Nives are the Posh and Becks of Croatia.

Their son Leone has long blond hair like Madeleine's, but the similarity ends there - he is even six months younger than the missing three-year-old.

Today Nives told of the moment that the British couple mistakenly attempted to make off with their little boy.

She said: 'I started getting suspicious when the British woman approached Leone and started chatting with him.

'Suddenly she grabbed him by the arm, apparently thinking nobody was watching him.

'However, when I went over she realised her mistake and apologised.'

Nives said she was used to people staring and taking photographs of her because she and her husband are famous in Croatia.

The British couple have not been named.

Madeleine was three when she disappeared during a family holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal, on May 3 last year.

Since then there have been false sightings as far apart as Morocco, Belgium, Chile and Venezuela.

This hysteria is so out of control. Now you have people attempting to kidnap "look-alikes" from their parents. I just knew something like this was going to happen. I'm sure it's not even the first attempt at something like this.

This wasn't even a girl that they tried to grab. This was a BOY!! A little boy at that!! McCann would be almost five. How someone can mistake a two or three year old little BOY for a five year old GIRL is beyond me!!

As people have pointed out, they're lucky that the parents were understanding. If it had been my child, they would be sitting in jail right now on attempted kidnapping charges. There would have been no apology because I would have given them a verbal beatdown!!

Seriously, how fucking dare people attempt to take a child simply because they "believe" that it's this missing child. What balls!!
