Help Identify a
Young Girl Left Alone by the Tsunami-Truth!
Summary of the eRumor Picture of a young girl
said to be a lonely survivor of the 2004 Tsunami in Thailand.
The Truth According to UNICEF's
child trafficking arm The Innocenti Research Centre, this girl was a
victim of the South Asian tsunami, but has been identified.
She is Sophie Marleen Micl.
She became separated from her parents in Phuket, Thailand on the day
of the tsunami waves and when she was found, she was taken to a
hospital in Phuket..
She was not identified until several days later.
Her parents have never been found.
She was returned to Germany for further medical treatment and is in
the care of relatives.
The UNICEF site links to a press release from police in Hessen,
It says that she was cared for in the Vachira hospital in Phuket.
Someone along the way decided to declare that the search for her was
an Amber Alert, which is not true.

A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
Do you recognize this child?
This little girl is at the Phuket Hospital in Thailand. She does
remember her own name or anything! She has lost her parents.
She must be of Western origin. She was a victim when she got
the tidal wave disaster in Phuket, Thailand and nobody knows who
so we are hoping if we distribute this email around the world
will know her.
Please don't break the chain, your contribution could be the one
solves this little girls problem.
Please forward this to all your contacts.
Someone might realize who she is.
