Authorities in Croatia are searching for the family of a young girl who was found in a park a month ago, and they hope media attention will help to reunite the girl with her parents.

Unfortunately, nobody knows the girl’s real name, her age, or even what language she speaks.

‘Nina’, as authorities have named her, was found in a park in Velika Gorica, Croatia and it’s believed she may have lost her family as they fled from Europe to Syria.

More than 330,000 refugees have entered Croatia in the last two months, many of them families with small children.

As reported by Sky News, Croatia’s Family Minister Milanka Opacic invited the media to meet Nina at Zagreb’s Child Care Centre, in a bid to spread the word and try and find anyone who might recognise her.

She said:

So far we have no new information, we still can’t figure out the language and country of origin of the child. Today we decided to ask you, the media, to help find out her identity. The media can place her face in foreign media, due to your international co-operation. It’s very important to us that anyone anywhere recognises her, so we can contact any members of her family.

Let’s hope somebody, somewhere recognises Nina and she can be reunited with her family very soon.
