The last Thawatchai said he knew was that the girl’s uncle, Doi Wiwanjan, 42, said he was taking the child to buy chips. The motive for the abduction and abandonment was unknown, as the uncle has come up missing as well.
Little “Taengmo” was found early Dec. 26 by a Kledkaew garbage collector near a dump on Soi Najomtien 27. She was dirty and hungry, but otherwise unharmed.
A tearful Thawatchai Phewonn is reunited with little “Taengmo”.
