Missing Daughter Reunites With Family 24 Years Later In China

Missing Daughter Reunites With Family 24 Years Later In China

In 2015, Wang took up a job as a cab driver, which opened up new ways for him to find his daughter.

Wang Mingqing and his wife Liu Dengying were working on a fruit stall in the city of Chengdu in 1994 when Mr Wang left Qifeng alone for a few minutes while he went to get change.

Cameras followed Kang Ying's journey on the train from Chengdu airport to meet her mother and father.

For years the couple walked and cycled around Chengdu searching for their daughter. His plan gained media attention in China, and despite Chinese police identifying a number of women who fit Qifeng's description, DNA tests were negative.

Earlier this year, Qifeng, now 27, who had grown up with the name Kang Ying, came across a social media appeal post and reached out to the couple who she thought might be her parents.

A 40-year-old mum will face court later this month for allegedly waking her sleeping teenage son with a taser when he wouldn't get up to go to church. He would ask each of his passengers any potential information that could lead to the location of his lost daughter, giving them a card with information about his daughter and telling them to share it on WeChat.

Mr Wang did not have a picture of Qifeng as a toddler so he used a picture of his other daughter in his leaflets, as they looked similar. Qifeng and her parents cried and hugged as they were reunited. It had been drawn by a police sketch artist who had heard Wang's story.

Qifeng had been adopted by a family who found her on the side of the road in Chengdu.

On Sunday, Kang took a DNA test, which officially confirmed that she was the daughter Wang and Liu had been searching for, reported South China Morning Post.

"My efforts of 24 years were not wasted", Mr. Wang told his friends, according to a BBC report.

After finding her daughter, Wang cryingly said: "From now on, Dad is here - you don't need to worry about anything - Dad will help you".

Yesterday (Apr. 03), Wang and his wife were reunited with their daughter in person. "My daughter has been found - thank you everyone".

The following day, they were reunited after 24 years.
