Greek police have launched an international search to establish the identity of a little blonde, blue-eyed girl found living with a Roma couple who are not her parents, the Euro News website reports today (October 21, 2013).
They hope Interpol (international police) can help solve the mystery of the girl -- aged around four -- who was discovered in central Greece, and is now in the care of a charity. Suspicions arose when she bore no resemblance to the two dark-complexioned Roma adults who claimed to be her parents.
"During questioning about the girl, they gave conflicting answers," a news conference was told by Vassilis Halatsis, the Police Director of Thessalia province. He added, "The constantly changing claims of the supposed parents consolidated our beliefs that these were not the biological parents of the child."
DNA tests confirmed this and the pair have been arrested and charged with abduction.
