Police find missing Haidari teen

A teenage girl who went missing in the western Athens suburb of Haidari a few days ago and was found by the Hellenic Police (ELAS) had fallen prey to a prostitution ring that trafficked women and underage girls via the internet, authorities said on Tuesday.

Police arrested a man of Albanian descent who allegedly held her illegally after communicating with her online.

The 17-year-old went missing on the night of June 3 and a day later, the Child’s Smile, an NGO that deals with children rights and welfare in Greece, was informed.

Following a court order the Child’s Smile issued an announcement and a police investigation was launched which led to her recovery.
