Here is the story of Alessia, kidnapped in 1985 at the age of 2 and a half. She is looking for her family and if anyone recognizes her story please contact by writing to Italian Missing Children.
Birth date: March 1985
Age I went missing: 2.5 years old/ now aged 36 years old
Now safe and living in Sydney, Australia
Kidnapped/ trafficked to the United Kingdom as a child.
Identifiers: I was wearing a butterfly ring, and a silver crucifix communion necklace, with a letter A on it.
I was wearing a pink t- shirt with a kitten on it, and pink pants.
My name is Alessia,
I was kidnapped as a child, and taken to the United Kingdom by three men.
I was given to a man, who didn’t want children, and he gave me to his wife’s brother.
Most of the children I was kept with for a few years, sadly passed away, having not been sold.
However the wife of the man, who was trafficking the children, decided she wanted to bring me up with her own daughter.
So, they dyed my hair blonde and changed my name. I was kept captive in their home and
I was, however, allowed to attend school, occasionally, horse ride and go on family holidays.
At age 16, I wanted to move in with a boyfriend, i met working in at italian restaurant in England, and the mans wife said I could leave the house.
Later his wife decided I should do my high school exams and see if I could get into University.
I passed my University degree in 2010 in Business Management and met my husband, (a training doctor), who I later married and moved to Australia with in 2013..
We later divorced and I am now single, living in Sydney Australia, working in Customer
I was recently looking into the prospect of meeting, a new partner ,to start a family with. So I guess, this is where my journey to find the grandparents to my future children begins..
If you know someone, who’s daughter (a single child) went missing in the year of 1987, when she was around 2 years old with the name Alessia (Lessi) please get in contact!
I used to always say, where I used to live all of the houses were different colours, I wouldn’t really eat any other food apart from tomato pasta and bananas!
I think my mothers name was Maria, and she must have been very religious, because even at 2yrs old, I used to pray daily, even in captivity.
I hope to hear from you soon..
