DNA dirty war search The founder of Argentina's leading human rights group has said that she has found a grandson taken from her daughter while a prisoner of the military dictatorship in the 1970s, one of the long-unsolved mysteries from the "dirty war" era.

Surrounded by her large extended family, Estela Barnes de Carlotto, founder of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo, announced on Monday that her long hunt for her grandchild had ended, while acknowledging other families are still searching for hundreds of children taken under similar circumstances.

"Thanks to God, thanks to life, because I didn't want to die without embracing him and soon I will be able to," the 83-year-old grandmother said at a news conference covered live on national TV. She has not yet met him.

The now 36-year-old man came forward on his own to have a DNA test taken and have the sample compared in a national database because he had doubts about his own identity, said Guido Carlotto, a son of de Carlotto who is human rights secretary for Buenos Aires Province.

The family did not release the man's name, but Argentine media identified him as Ignacio Hurban, a pianist and composer who is director of a music school in Olavarria, a city southwest of Buenos Aires.
