    Greece - LIVING 4 year old, with Roma couple, Oct'13 - #1

    Not sure where to post this, I'm sure there is probably already a thread but I can't find one...

    Police found the girl who has blonde hair and blue eyes living with the Roma couple. Struck by the fact that the girl didn't resemble her parents in any way, police took the couple into custody. A DNA test later confirmed that she was not their offspring
    Police believe the girl was abducted in 2009

    Another article with more info...

    The child was found Wednesday near Farsala in central Greece during a nationwide crackdown on illegal activities by Roma, also known as Gypsies. Police say they also found drugs and unregistered firearms in other parts of the settlement, which is about 280 kilometers (170 miles) north of Athens.

    But the blonde, pale-skinned and blue-eyed girl stood out. She bore no resemblance to the Greek couple, a 39-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, who were arrested and charged with abducting a minor. Police said DNA testing confirmed that they weren't related.

    "Her features suggest that she might be from an eastern or northern (European) country," regional police chief Panayiotis Tzavaras said.

    Police have notified Interpol for assistance.

    The suspects allegedly offered conflicting accounts — that the girl was found in a blanket, was handed to them by strangers or had a foreign father.

    Is this some other poor parent’s Maddie? Police appeal for help identifying blonde girl, 4, found living on gypsy camp in Greece after charging couple with abduction

    Who is she? Police are appealing for help identifying this four-year-old girl who was found on a gypsy camp in Greece after she was allegedly abducted
    Greek authorities have requested international help to identify a four-year-old girl found living in a Gypsy camp with a couple whom they have arrested and charged with abducting her.
    A police statement says the child was found on Wednesday near Farsala in central Greece during a nationwide crackdown on illegal activities by Roma, also known as Gypsies.
    The case bears a disturbing similarity to theories about the disappearance of British toddler Madeleine McCann, who went missing on a family holiday in Portugal on May 3, 2007.
    The girl found in Greece, who is blonde and pale-skinned, bore no resemblance to the Greek couple, who police said offered conflicting accounts - that she was found in a blanket or was handed to them by strangers.
    A 39-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman have been arrested and charged with abducting a minor.
    Police said today that DNA testing proved she was not related to the couple.


    Police say they also found drugs and unregistered firearms in other parts of the settlement, which is about 280 kilometers (170 miles) north of Athens.
    'Her features suggest that she might be from an eastern or northern (European) country,' regional police chief Panayiotis Tzavaras said.
    Police have notified Interpol for assistance.
    The police statement said the couple claimed to have a total 14 children, and had registered different numbers with authorities in three different parts of Greece.

    Officers found three minors living with them in the settlement who appear to be their children - although that hasn't yet been verified by DNA testing.
    Police said the child was found near Farsala in central Greece during a crackdown on illegal activities by Roma

    The girl is in the care of the charity 'A child's smile,' which said today it has sought the assistance of European and global groups for lost or abused children in tracking her parents.

    Charity director Costas Giannopoulos said the child was undergoing medical examinations.

    'We are shocked by how easy it is for people to register children as their own,' he told private Skai TV.

    •Who did the key witness see? Police say it is possible that family saw Maddie being taken by her abductor

    'There is much more to investigate, there are other registered children that were not found in the settlement, and I believe police will unravel a thread that doesn't just have to do with the girl.'
    News of the girl's alleged abduction comes just a few days after London's Metropolitan Police has recently revealed results of a major review of evidence into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

    That was my first thought too but she might be too old to be Lisa. They're saying she was probably abducted in 2009, and Lisa disappeared in 2011.

    This photo is heartbreaking. I hate posting such a sad picture, but if it helps get the word out and lead to her identity...

    Who are you sweetie?
