The images showed an adult, apparently in her 20s, who covered her head with what looked like a scarf. She was walking several meters in front of the little girl, who crossed an avenue alone while trying to reach her supposed companion.
He immediately transferred her to a hospital, where they certified her good health.
In addition to the video, authorities released the photo of the girl, who said her name was Sidaya, in the hope that someone could identify her. For now he is under the care of child services.
