A woman who disappeared in the jungles of northeastern Cambodia as an eight-year-old child has apparently been found after living in the wild for 19 years, police said yesterday.

The woman, believed to be Rochom P'ngieng, now 27, can't speak any intelligible language.

"She is half-human and half- animal. She's weird. She sleeps during the day and stays up at night," said police.

P'ngieng disappeared in 1988. - Sapa-AP
