(Scroll down for video) A girl was left traumatized after she was taken by force from her school in Mexico to the United States.

The 14-year-old girl was taken by force from her school in Guanajuato, by federal agents and flown to Texas, in a case of mistaken identity.
The girl was taken from her school after Dorotea Garcia of Houston, said that her daughter, Alondra Garcia, was kidnapped by her father, Reynaldo Díaz, and taken to Mexico in 2007.

Earlier this year, Garcia traveled to Guanajuato and identified Alondra Luna Nunez as her daughter. Nunez and her lost daughter share the same first name.

A judge ordered Nunez to be returned to the United States, so she can be with her “mother.”

Nunez was seen on video crying and protesting as she was taken by force by the Mexican Federal Police and Interpol, even after the family insisted that it was a case of mistaken identity.

The parents of the 14-year-old girl traveled to the United States by bus and went to court with the their daughter’s birth certificate.

The Foreign Ministry, which later intervened, requested a DNA test, which proved that Nunez was not the daughter of Dorotea Garcia.

One week after she was taken, Nunez was finally reunited with her parents and she was returned to Mexico. Her parents held a large party for family members, celebrating the return of their daughter.
