A child, who was believed lost during the tsunami catastrophe in 2004, has been found by National Child Protection Authority, an official said.
The six-year-old girl was found in a house in Colombo by the NCPA officials following a tip-off and a suspect has been arrested for abducting and keeping the child illegally, an NCPA official said.
A couple had taken the child after she lost her parents during the tsunami in Mahamodara, Galle. The child was a year old when she went missing in December 2004, they said.
More than 30,000 people were killed in Sri Lanka during the tsunami six years ago.
