The police have found a child allegedly held captive by a man with the help of a woman since late 2014. 
 
They are suspected of having kept the boy prisoner in a rented cottage in Tampere. 
 
The Pirkanmaa District Court on Thursday ordered detention of both the 41-year-old man and the 29-year-old woman on suspicion of aggravated kidnapping of a child. 
 
According to the police, the woman, now imprisoned by the court, belongs to the man’s inner circle.
 
The child’s appearance had been altered so that he looked like a girl. “Apparently, the reason was to avoid being caught,” said lead investigator Detective Chief Inspector Pasi Nieminen of the Central Finland Police Department.
 
The four-year-old boy has been missing since late 2014, according to the police.
 
Meanwhile, in another incident, the Turku Court of Appeals increased the sentence in a case that involved the kidnapping of a child’s mother. 
 
The father and his daughter have now been found to have held the mother prisoner and kept her under their power. The woman gave birth to several of the man’s children while being his captive. The other children are no longer missing.
 
In May, the court sentenced the 45-year-old man to five years and eight months in prison for, among other things, aggravated human trafficking and child abduction. 
 
His 23-year-old daughter received four years in prison for aggravated human trafficking and other offences. Her sentence was shorter due to her young age.
 
The children were marked with the name of the man’s daughter.
