Roma couple held for abduction of girl, aged 4, in 2009

Police revealed on Friday that a four-year-old girl found on Wednesday at a Roma settlement in Farsala, near Larissa in central Greece, was kidnapped from her biological parents in 2009 by two residents of the camp after a DNA test on the couple showed that they were not her biological parents.

Suspicions were raised as the girl is blonde and fair-skinned with green eyes and bears no physical resemblance to either of the Roma camp residents who had kept her as their child.

The couple was detained for questioning by police in Larissa and reportedly kept changing their testimonies about how the girl came to live with them on the camp.

According to police, the Roma couple had also managed to obtain the girl's birth certificate from municipal authorities.

Police in Larissa said they are seeking the girl's biological parents and asked anyone with information to telephone them at 2410-683171 or 2410-683184-5.

The four-year-old was being looked at after by the child support group Hamogelou Tou Paidiou (Child's Smile).
