(Newser) – Greek police have released photos of the Roma couple they believe may have kidnapped a mysterious blonde four-year-old girl. The duo has been identified as 39-year-old Christos Salis and a 40-year-old woman who uses both the names Eleftheria Dimopoulou and Selini Sali, the AP reports. The couple have now been formally charged with abducting the girl, known only as "Maria," and have been placed in detention to await their trial, the BBC reports. The charity looking after Maria says it has already had 10,000 phone calls and emails about the girl, and is following up on four promising leads.

Love Salis's prominent *Nike* sweatshirt! Maybe Nike will do like BMW did recently and sue to make criminals cease-and-desist from using their product when committing acts the company thinks are bad for their "image". (BMW took a "porn" website to court for links to photos and movies showing graphic sexual acts being done in and on BMW cars!)

Whooee, what ugly people they are. The man is especially hideous. The little girl looks Slavic.
