Coroner declares open finding in missing toddler case

A CORONER has done nothing to dispel suspicions the family of missing Sydney toddler Rahma El-Dennauoi played a part in her disappearance seven years ago.

Deputy State Coroner Sharon Freund told an inquest into the 20-month-old's presumed death that she refused to accept Rahma had been kidnapped by someone with no link to the El-Dennaoui family or rule out the possibility she was still alive.

She declared an open finding and handed the case back to the Homicide Squad.

Outside the court, Rahma's father Hosayn said he and his wife had "done nothing" to Rahma and wanted to know what had happened to her.
