I can't find any reference to the missing child.

Some reports say sold for 10k, but no further details or pictures of the child back with her mother.

An amber alert was posted on an English language news site which we are not allowed to link to due to CEO policy.

According to what I read, a gentleman purchased the child for $100 but discovered through Facebook that she had been kidnapped and alerted the authorities and the family to return the child to them.

If that's the case, then the ''gentleman '' should have been arrested too.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Seems like the 'sale' thing was rumor.. I don't see any more arrests.. The article about the 10k has black holed.

Anyway here is the pic of the child back albeit with her aunt.

Good work the police!!

If he has done the right thing and returned the child, I wouldn't.

I agree. Unfortunately it is common practice to buy children here. I don’t condone it, but at least the gentleman with most likely little to no education did not harm the child.
