"A 12-year-old girl who disappeared nearly five years ago has been reunited with her mother.
Cara Cox vanished in August 2009 from Deltona, Florida, when she was apparently kidnapped by her father Aaron Cox during a routine weekend visit, according to the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children.
But on Saturday, she was reunited with her mother Jodie Borchert after 57 months of being missing, local news station News 13 reported.
A team of US Marshals, stationed in Mexico City, traveled to the remote area around two hours outside the city where they conducted surveillance and found the girl and her father, who was arrested.
Cara, who turns 13 on Monday, was flown to Miami, where she was reunited with her mother on Saturday.
Her father was also returned to the US and is awaiting extradition Volusia County, where the warrant for his arrest was originally issued, according to WFTV Orlando.
Cox's mother had custody of the child when she disappeared aged eight".
So a child is abducted by the other parent: this happens. Does this relate to Madeleine McCann?
It is posted in the Have your say -other topics, so it doesn't have to relate to MM anyway.
That said, however, I would say that this is a topic of related interest in that it relates to a missing girl. There are also other matters within that which can be compared and contrasted to the case of Madeleine, eg Age Progression, the fact that this girl has been undiscovered since 2009 etc.
It is of as much general discussion value imo as any of the "other topics" on the Have your say board.
Child is living with one parent and not with the other one.
I know, let's record that as an ABDUCTION !
Please give generously to a Bogus Charity near you with the words, "missing", or Children", or Abducted", or "Kidnapped" in its title.
