DNA tests by the Ministry of Public Security have cleared a man of allegations that he had fathered his daughter's baby.
Police in the northern province of Phu Yen said they received the ministry's test results on May 5, which showed the baby was the biological child of a 24-year-old Dang Thi Tam Anh, but not Anh's father, news website VnExpress said Friday.
Anh was rescued by local reporters in early June from a forested area in the province. She said she had been sent there and forced to stay alone by her father for eight years.
She had claimed that her baby girl of between 14 and 16 months old was the result of her father having raped her many times.
Phu Yen police said they would investigate the case further and look for the baby's father. They are also considering testing Anh's mental condition.
Anh and her baby are living at the province's Social Center for Treatment and Labor Education and are reportedly doing well.
She has also accused the father of beating her, and this has backed by neighbors who also said he beat up his wife and other daughters.
They said the eldest daughter had mental problems and had gone missing while another one had run away to Ho Chi Minh City.
The father and mother of Anh had earlier denied all the allegations made by her.
