Greek police have launched an international search to establish the identity of a little girl found living with a Roma couple who are not her parents.

They hope Interpol can help solve the mystery of the girl, aged around four, who was discovered in central Greece. Suspicions were aroused as she bore no resemblance to the two adults.

“During questioning about the girl, they gave conflicting answers,” a news conference was told by Vassilis Halatsis, the Police Director of Thessalia province. “The constantly changing claims of the supposed parents consolidated our beliefs that these were not the biological parents of the child.”

DNA tests confirmed this and the pair have been arrested for alleged abduction.

The parents of missing British girl Madeleine McCann have reportedly been given hope by the discovery of the child, who is now in the care of a charity.
