A four-year old girl going by the name Maria, with blond hair and blue eyes, was found in a Roma, Greece in a case that has gained international attention.
Officials raided the area looking for drugs and weapons but a prosecutor, along for the raid, noticed Maria’s head poking out from under some sheets. The prosecutor became
suspicious because the girl looked nothing like her “parents” and DNA tests later confirmed she was not.
There is an international search taking place to establish who her real parents are. Over 8,000 calls have already been placed to the charity whose care she is now under.
Incredibly, the people with whom she was found, registered 14 children in three different Greek regions. In the area where Maria was found, authorities only found two other girls and one boy.
Police suspect child-trafficking after DNA testing “showed that there was not any genetic compatibility” between the girl and her “parents” after her rescue.
The two people posing as Maria’s parents have been arrested and face charges of abducting a minor, as well as counts of falsifying identity documents.
