Tripoli Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency (TAIIA) has sent an urgent call to Côte d'Ivoire's government, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the Italian Refugee Council (CIR), the Danish Refugee Council, and other international organizations to help a 6-year-old girl from Côte d'Ivoire to find her missing parents.

The girl has been living in Sikka Detention Centre since December 2016.

The TAIIA said they had contacted the Embassy of Côte d'Ivoire and several international organizations to help the girl, but they refused.
