The shocking clip features a woman in Mexico claiming she’s 22 and doesn’t know where she was raised.
Police in Kennewick, Washington are investigating whether a woman in a TikTok video is the child who was abducted a day before her fifth birthday in 2003.
Social media users contacted authorities after the clip of a woman in Mexico claiming she didn’t know where she was born went viral, causing a renewed interest in the unsolved kidnapping of Sofia Juarez.
“This is one of those cases that everybody in our community knows exactly what they were doing when she went missing,” Lt. Aaron Clem told NBC News on Friday.
TikTok users also claimed the woman bears a strong resemblance to Juarez.
Shot in Culiacan, Mexico and posted last month, the video features a reporter asking a young woman sitting in a plaza about her age and upcoming birthday.
“In all honesty, I don’t like my birthday,” she says in Spanish after claiming she is 22. “It shocks me each time I have another one. I want to say hi to my auntie and my nana. And I want them to come to get me, because I’ve been kidnapped.”
