Kidnapped Chinese toddler reunited with parents after 32 years

Kidnapped Chinese toddler reunited with parents after 32 years

Mao Yin was two years old when he was abducted at the entrance of a hotel in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province in 1986, reports the SCMP.

Mr Mao said he would accompany his parents in Xi'an for some days before returning to Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan, to deal with some of his own issues.

His abduction is still under investigation.

They used facial recognition technology to analyze old baby photos of Mao - and Gu's true identity was confirmed with DNA testing.

The image was compared to the images in a national database, where Mao was found.

A heartwarming scene unfolded in Xi'an on Monday when Mao Yin, abducted at the age of 2, was reunited with his mother and father after 32 years. "I will not let him leave me anymore", Li said as she held onto her son's hand.

Mao will move back to Xi'an to live with his biological parents who never gave up searching for him for three decades.

Mao Yin was taken from his parents in 1988 when he was two years old. The family had a tearful reunion at a police news conference on Monday, according to a BBC report. The man underwent a DNA test to see if he had anything to do with Li Jingzhi and Zhenjing, and the test was positive.

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

To find her son, Ms Li quit her job and sent out more than 100,000 flyers.

Over the years she appeared on numerous Chinese television shows to appeal for help, including The X Factor.

Back in April, police received a tip-off that a little boy had been living with his adoptive parents since the late 1980s, and was now called Gu Ningning.

Mao recognised his birth mother straight away, and ran to her arms. "I know Kate and Gerry will want to wish the family in China all the very best for the future".

There are no official statistics on the number of children who disappear every year in China, but a system was established in 2016 to send alerts about missing children through social media and mobile phone texts.

This photo taken on May 18, 2020 shows Mao Yin (C) speaking with his mother Li Jingzhi (L) and father Mao Zhenping (R) in Xian, in China's northern Shaanxi province. On the website "Baby Come Home", a widely-used platform for Chinese parents to post missing child notices, more than 51,000 registered families are searching for their children.

In 2019, Xinhua news agency claim Chinese authorities reunited more than 6,300 families with snatched children.
