A world-wide hunt is underway to find the parents of this little girl known as 'Maria'. Police discovered her living in a gypsy camp in Greece with a couple who clearly weren't her parents. DNA tests confirmed the girl is not related to the couple.
Authorities fear the Roma gypsy camp is involved in human trafficking.
Maria, who is thought to be five or six years old, was reportedly in a terrible state physically and mentally. She was distressed when taken to hospital but after a bath and some treatment, started feeling better. She is now under the care of a Greek charity and child psychologists.
Christos Salis, 39, and Eleftheria Dimopoulou, 40, have been arrested and charged with the abduction of a child, illegally claiming benefits and obtaining a false birth certificate.
Police are urging the public to come forward with any information they have on the found girl.
"We don't have anything about her origin, so we don't really know anything so everything needs to be clarified."
Maria was found after police raided the gypsy camp to investigate why they had registered so many children. Apparently it is common practice by gypsy camps to maximise benefits they can claim from the state. However the girl clearly didn't match her parents so police removed her from the camp and took her parents into custody.
A lawyer for the couple claim they adopted her from her biological mother, a Bulgarian woman who couldn't care for her. Kostas Katsavos admits the adoption was unlawful, however say they have loved her and cared for her all her life.
In fact, her adoptive parents want her back. "They love her, and they took care as their own child," he said.
