The discovery of the 127th grandchild missing since the dictatorship has concluded a successful year for the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo.
Now into late 80s and early 90s, and with the support of an impressive team of collaborators and specialists, the “Abuelas” have now solved three new cases in as many months.
“We are happy to announce the discovery of a new granddaughter. She is the daughter of María del Carmen Moyano and Carlos Poblete and was born during her parents’ illegal detention in May or June of 1977 in the ESMA,” Grandmothers president Estela Carlotto told journalists gathered for a press conference
“Let’s hope we can reach 130 by the 31st," she added.
Carlotta, flanked by members of both families, expressed the hope that the young woman might soon come forward to learn more about her family history and meet the world-renowned Grandmothers, who this year commemorated their 40th anniversary.
The young woman is said to be reflecting still on the news of her true identity.
