DNA Tests Cannot Confirm Kidnapped Girl Found
DNA tests taken last week have failed to confirm or disprove that a woman found living in southern Israel is Alexandra Brandt, who was kidnapped in 1994 at age 10.
Alexandra Brandt’s disappearance in 1994 in Ramat Gan horrified the nation. Countless searches failed to turn up a sign as to her whereabouts.
Then, this February, her mother and sister made a shocking report: they had seen Alexandra alive and well at a family event. The woman they believed to be Alexandra denied their claims and said she had her own parents.
