Last Tuesday, the 17-year-old Christine William Helmy Girgis went missing from her home in the village of Abu Yot, Wasta, in Beni Sweif some 100km south of Cairo. Her father said his daughter had gone out for an errand but never returned home.
The father who works as a carpenter filed a complaint with the Wasta police station accusing the Muslim Ahmed Rabie of kidnapping his underage daughter. He also gave the police report the licence plate numbers of the car which he claims took his daughter away.
On Friday, Christine was found and returned to her parents. The details of her disappearance and re-appearance are not yet known.
