Search for missing Austrian child

PHUKET: The International Victim Coordination Center (IVCC) has appealed for help in tracing a three-year-old girl from Austria who is believed to have surivived the tsunami but been mistaken for a Thai child.

MR Supinda Chakraband, of the IVCC, told the Gazette, “It is thought the little girl, who calls herself “Anita” and “Alexandra”, survived the tsunami but she is now sick and being cared for by Thai people somewhere in Phuket.

“Anita can speak no Thai, but her face looks Thai and her skin may be darker because of the sun.”

A reward has been offered for the child’s safe return.

Anyone with any information can contact the parents’ representative, Gunter Neubert, at Tel: 01-0917223, or Child Line at Tel: 1387.
