BUENOS AIRES, ArgentinaAn Argentine human rights group says DNA evidence has identified the 103rd young person who was stolen at birth during the country's dictatorship in the late 1970s.

The Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo say the young woman was born in 1976 to Cecilia Beatriz Barral, who was nine months pregnant when kidnapped with her partner, Ricardo Horacio Klotzman. The couple were militants in the Revolutionary Workers Party, prime targets for elimination after Argentina's military coup.

A court forced the woman to take a DNA test against her will and released the results to the involved parties Tuesday. The Grandmothers announced the results Wednesday.

The Grandmothers say the woman's half-sister has never stopped looking for her.
