ORLANDO, Florida – A 2-year-old girl has been reunited with her parents in Orlando after authorities say she was taken to Argentina by a nun who refused to give her back to her parents.
Maria Lopez-Vazquez arrived from Argentina Tuesday evening, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Laura Maria Caballero was arrested and charged with false imprisonment in January.
The child's parents say Caballero was controlling and threatened to have them deported as illegal immigrants. Investigators say the nun managed to persuade them to hand over the child in July.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office says Caballero took the girl to her native Argentina the next month. Detectives later tracked down the child and arranged the reunion.
Lopez-Vazquez could not be reached for comment.
