Human Trafficking Victim Found After 32 Years.
An Argentine woman kidnapped 32 years ago as a teenager has been found alive and well in Bolivia following a joint investigation between the two countries, Argentine police disclosed today.
The victim who is now 45 years old was kidnapped for human trafficking at just 13 years old, police confirmed.
Bolivian officers had been gathering evidence on the woman’s whereabouts for several months at the behest of their Argentine counterparts, before localizing her in a small town in the south of the country.
Once Bolivian authorities gave the authorization, police liberated the woman and her son.
The pair were transferred to Mar del Plata, her hometown some 400 kilometers (250 miles) to the south of Buenos Aires, where she was reunited with family, Argentine police said.
