The couple claimed that they had met Bakker chatting online and they had invited her to meet their new daughter, and she had stolen then her and driven off in a white Chevrolet Trucker SUV with tinted windows.

However, the police quizzed both partners separately and they discovered their stories were contradictory and later the mother confessed they had sold the baby girl, but that she then changed her mind.

Local authorities then tracked down the SUV driver in the city of Villa Carlos Paz who had been hired to take Bakker to the meeting in Carlos Spegazzini. The woman gave the agents Bakker’s address in the municipality of Villa Gardino and she was arrested.

The parents Fazio and Ugarte are under police custody. Beaker is also under police custody. Both are accused of conspiring to hide the youngsters identity to make it seem the child belonged to Baaker. The SUV driver was released but is still being investigated.

The baby girl was in a good health condition and the Secretary of Childhood, Adolescence and Family of Córdoba (SENAF) has ordered her placed with a foster family which will take care of her temporarily until a tribunal decides her fate.
