Colombia has confirmed two girls kidnapped in southern states and returned to Colombia in the past week have been found, the Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
The ministry’s director general of security, Francisco Ruiz, told reporters that authorities in the Colombian city of Quito found the two girls in the city of Medellin.
He said authorities found the girls in their homes.
Ruiz also said authorities had found a fourth girl, who was abducted in the same city.
Ruiz did not elaborate on the details of the fourth girl.
The kidnapping came on the heels of the kidnapping of two other teenagers, aged 13 and 16, from their families in the capital Bogota.
Both were released by authorities on Monday.
Authorities have also found a woman, who authorities say was abducted from her home in the southern state of Zacatecas in early February.
The woman was released by police.
Ruitz said authorities have detained more than 5,000 people in the country in the last year, making it the second-most dangerous in the world.
