FOUR missing children have been found as a result of appeals posted alongside Roma player announcements including those of Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Italian club confirmed today an eight-year-old Kenyan girl featured in ex-Manchester United defender Smalling’s announcement video was found safe.
The Englishman is also a father and tweeted his joy at the news.
He wrote: “As a father it makes me so happy to see that this young girl from my announcement video has been reunited with her loved ones.
“Hopefully we can help a lot more children find their rightful homes.”
And on Sunday a 13-year-old boy – whose missing poster was featured when ex-Arsenal man Mkhitaryan was announced – was also found unharmed.
Roma recently embarked on a social media campaign with missing child charities National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Telefono Azzurro.
In total four children have been found as Roma confirmed on their official Twitter account.
The post read: “A fourth missing child has been found! #ASRoma have today been informed that an eight-year-old Kenyan girl featured in the Chris Smalling transfer announcement video has been found safe.”
