MADELEINE McCann’s parents faced double heartache last night.

Two new clues to the youngster’s disappearance have been ruled out of the inquiry.

An Australian woman who matched the “Posh Spice lookalike” e-fit appeared to be entirely innocent of any involvement.

Judith Aron, 53, of Melbourne, said: “I have no connection to the little girl.

“I haven’t left Australia since 2000, so there’s no way I could have been in Portugal or Spain around the time she went missing.”

Ms Aron resembles the drawing of an Aussie woman who asked a stranger in Barcelona, shortly after Madeleine vanished two years ago: “Are you here to deliver my new daughter?”

In another disappointment to the McCanns, a £6million superyacht was also ruled out. Detectives hired by doctors Kate and Gerry McCann, both 41, had been hunting for the vessel.

Three days after Madeleine disappeared in Praia da Luz, Portugal, it was moored in a Barcelona marina where the mystery woman was spotted.

The Sunseeker Yacht 105, called Will Power, flies an Australian flag.

But last night the Brit skipper insisted it was a “coincidence’’. Its owner, £250m socialite Rhonda Wyllie, 52, was not on board at the time.

The skipper said he had dropped off her and her guests in Monaco. There were no Australians on board in Barcelona and he had never taken it to Portugal.

The captain, who asked not to be named, said: “There is absolutely no link between the boat and Madeleine.”

Port authority records back up his account of the boat’s movements.
