Guatemala - Candida, Claudia, Enma Galacia case

Three sisters stolen from their family, were split up, provided with fake birth certificates listing new names and younger ages. Two of the girls (Candida, Claudia) were located and reunited prior to adoption. The third girl Enma is still missing, probably adopted abroad. She would have been 8 in Dec 07, but would have been likely stated to be 4 to 6 years old. Mayra is the head of the ring which allegedly kidnapped the girls. Teo and Adoption Blessings Worldwide were in the process of placing Candida (aka Angie) real age was 5 with US parents who were told she was 2. The parents stopped the adoption when they discovered she was stolen.
