Abduction: Mother-son reunion in China via a map drawn from memory

 

 

Global New News Desk –
Reunion of mother and son through a map drawn from memory. A man who was abducted at the age of four in China’s Yunnan Province has been reunited with his real mother after 30 years with the help of a map of his village home drawn from his memory.

When Li Jingwei was four years old, a kidnapping ring tricked him and sold him to another family.

Mr. Li’s home was near the southwestern city of Zhaotong. And the family to which the kidnappers sold him – they lived about 1,600 kilometers away.

Mr. Li now lives in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong. He had been trying for some time to find his real parents.

After asking her foster parents and searching the DNA database, she found nothing and eventually resorted to the Internet.

On December 24, he drew a map of his lost village home and surrounding area from memory. He then published it in a video sharing app called Dwayne.

Police were then able to match the map to a small village. A woman was also found in the village – her son was missing.
After that the DNA sample was matched to confirm that Mr. Lee-e is the woman’s lost son.

This is how Li Jingwei and his mother were reunited after more than three decades.

A video of their reunion has surfaced online and shows Lee removing the mask from his mother’s face and watching her, then hugging her and breaking down in tears.

‘Map of my village house’

Sons are highly valued in Chinese society, and that is why child abductions are not uncommon. Many of them were abducted at a very young age and sold to other families.

The same thing happened in Li Jingwei’s life. But the memory of the village he last saw at the age of four did not fade from his mind.

In the map published online, he depicts his village path, house, bamboo bush, a small pond, and a building – which seemed to him a school.

“This is a map of the area around my house. I drew it from memory,” said Li Jingwei, who showed the map in a video posted online.

“I was a child trying to find her home. * I was taken to Henan by a bald-headed neighbor in 1989. * I was four years old then.”

The video is shared thousands of times online.

Before reuniting with his mother. Lee wrote in his Dowin profile, “Thirty-three years of waiting, countless nightmares, and 13 days after a hand-drawn map, the moment of release of my emotions has finally arrived. Thanks to everyone who helped me reunite with my family.”

In China, an estimated 20,000 children are abducted each year in 2015. In the year 2021, there have been many incidents in the country where such lost boys have been reunited with their real parents.

Guo Gangtang was reunited with his abducted son in Shandong Province last July after 24 years.
