Police in Can Tho City have arrested a woman who allegedly sold a girl for VND7 million (US$335).

Pham Thi Huong Suong, 47, had sold 5-year-old Danh Thi Dao to a woman in neighboring Hau Giang Province by lying that the girl was her late husband's daughter, police said Sunday.

They said a search was launched for Dao after her mother Danh Thi Dien, 29, reported her missing in late May. The girl was spotted in Hau Giang in early June.

Suong said she managed to take Dao with her after her own child struck a friendship with her on the street.

More details about the case have not been made available.
