The National Police has reported this Tuesday that three people have been arrested in the Canary Islands for abducting a 9 year old immigrant girl to take her to Paris claiming that one of them was her aunt and the other two her parents.
The girl arrived in the Canary Islands in a boat and lived in Gran canaria in a foster care with a woman who claimed to be his aunt.
A man and a woman, pretending to be her parents, tried to take her to Paris and took a flight to Tenerife, where they have been arrested.
The alleged aunt and the alleged parents have been arrested after Civil Guard agents learned that a minor had disappeared from a reception facility in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
The girl lived in that half-stay center with a 22-year-old woman, who claimed to be her aunt, since their arrival on the island by boat.
Those responsible for the center told police investigators that a young couple, after identifying themselves as the minor’s parents, had come to the accommodation to visit her but, hours later, they realized that the girl had not returned.
Once at the police headquarters, the detainee voluntarily acknowledged that he was not the father of the little girl, while the detained woman could not document her motherhood, so the corresponding DNA tests will be carried out in order to determine if it really is about the mother of the child.
