Marina Chapman is now a housewife in Bradford – but, she had lived for 5-years Tarzan style among capuchin monkeys in Colombia after she was kidnapped and abandoned in a forest when she was only 5-years old.

She survived the hard way and learnt to catch birds and rabbits with her bare hands.

She was later rescued by humans and pushed into the prostitution racket but managed to escape and, managed to keep her nose above the water by doing odd jobs.

It seems she trained as a cook, worked at the National Media Museum in Bradford and, later switched over to helping troubled young children.

Subsequently, while working as a maid in Bradford, she met her husband and the two got married – they have two daughters.

This has been reported intelegraph.co.uk of dated the 22nd of October 2012.

Assisted by Vanessa James, one of her daughters, Marina has penned a book ‘The Girl with No Name’ – it would be on TV as well.
