The Argentine Police have rescued a woman and her daughter, who had been held captive for three years by a man in a house in La Plata, province of Buenos Aires, informs the Telam agency.
The 38-year-old woman and her abductor had met on Facebook and started a relationship. However, when in 2018, she decided to end the relationship, he refused to accept it and locked her up with his 14-year-old daughter.
The victims, originally from the city of Mar del Plata, were held in a precarious home and they were rescued after some neighbors alerted the police after suspecting that they had been deprived of their liberty.
