A woman once thought to have lived as a feral child in the Cambodian jungles has been claimed by a second family as their long-lost daughter.

The woman was caught stealing food in 2007, then was taken in by a family in Rattanakiri province village who named her Rochom P'ngieng and tried with minimal success to teach her everyday things.

Rochom Khamphy, who was previously presumed to be her Cambodian brother, said by telephone Thursday that his family agreed in principle to turn over the woman to a Vietnamese man after he presented proof she is his mentally disabled daughter Tak, who had disappeared in 2006.
