A short time after her seven-year-old daughter was abducted from an orange grove her Karen mother _ who was working illegally in Thailand with her husband _ went to confront the couple she believed had snatched her child. 

Dang was sure that her daughter, Air, had been taken by Rattanakorn Piyaworatham, 33, and her engineer husband Natee Taeng-orn, 35, and kept at their house 30km away in the Muang district of Kamphaeng Phet province.
