Couple that kidnapped blonde girl are facing charges

  • Greek police are trying to figure out the identity of a little girl with blonde hair and blue eyes who they found living with a couple in central Greece. 

    Authorities believe Maria may have been kidnapped since DNA tests prove that she is unrelated to the couple she was living with. Moreover, the couple provided conflicting statements on how the girl lives with them. 

    According to a local police chief, her features suggest that she comes from an eastern or northern country in Europe; the couple's lawyer mentioned that she was left by a foreigner at a local charity and was picked up from there. "The couple loved the girl as if she were their own," he said.

    The girl is now being looked after by a charity, which has received thousands of phone calls from parents offering tips or confirming that she's not their missing kid.
