More than twenty-five years ago, the Netherlands was first confronted with young single asylum seekers who disappeared from reception. Dozens of Nigerian girls disappeared from the shelter of the Valentijn Foundation in Nunspeet. “We found that they had a telephone number, for example on the inside of a bra strap,” says one of the employees at the time. "So they called, and a day later they were gone." Today the same thing is happening all over again.
