Children often go missing.

It is rare for one to turn up and nobody knows who she is or who she belongs to.   Meet “Maria”


Thousands of leads have been pouring in from around the world after a blond hair, blue-eyed girl was discovered in a Greek Roma community last week.

Hopeful parents think the abducted girl could be their daughter and officials are looking into 10 missing children cases.  

The DNA of a girl authorities think may have been abducted by a Roma couple in Greece doesn’t match any profile in Interpol’s database, the international law enforcement agency said Tuesday.

In a case that has generated huge interest in Greece, authorities have charged the couple with abducting the child they call Maria.

Interpol said Greek authorities have asked for its help in solving Maria’s identity.

“Until now, a comparison of the girl’s profile against Interpol’s global DNA database has not produced a match,” Interpol said in a news release.

Interpol said it would make the database available to authorities in countries where someone who claims to be a possible blood relative to the child has submitted a DNA profile.

The agency has more than 600 missing people listed on its website, 32 of whom are 5 or 6 years old.
