The girl removed from an Ireland Roma family comes on the heels of the gypsy girl removed from a Roma family in Greece last week. The Greek child is being dubbed “Blonde Angel.” The blonde girl living in Dublin with a Roma family was found by police after they were tipped off by the public that a child with blonde hair was living with the Roma family in the Tallaght district of west Dublin, according to The Guardian U.K. on Oct. 22.
The discovery of the little blonde girl in Ireland is credited to the public’s awareness of the blonde gypsy girl living with a Roma family in Greece who was put in protective custody as authorities diligently seek her biological parents. The blonde girl in Greece did not match DNA with the man and woman who claim they are her parents. The parents told five different stories about how the little girl came to live with them.
The little girl who was found in Ireland is said to be about seven years old and the family cannot provide a valid birth certificate or any documents that Irish law enforcement were satisfied with. It is not known if DNA testing is completed, but that would be an important step in finding the biological parents of the girl.
The Irish Police, or the garda, have removed the child from the house under the laws of the Child Care Act in Ireland. The Health Service Executive is believed to be seeking a court order to keep the child in custody as an investigation is on-going.
There is no new evidence about the origins of the blonde gypsy girl found in Greece, but the Greek authorities are working to find out where this little girl came from.
A video of the Greek gypsy girl surfaced showing her when she was just a toddler. She had reddish-brown hair. This gives more fuel to the speculation that the little girl’s hair was bleached to hide her identity.
