Chinese man meets son who was kidnapped 24 years ago
In 1997, 24 years after his 2-year-old son was kidnapped by traffickers outside his home in Shandong, a Chinese national was reunited with his son on Tuesday. According to Tuesday's "Guardian" report, Guo Gangtang has traveled across the country for 24 years, riding a motorcycle for more than 300,000 miles, carrying two flags.
According to a Guardian report on Tuesday, Guo Gangtang spent 24 years riding more than 300,000 miles on a motorcycle, with two posters hung with a photo of his son Guo Xinzhen.
In 2015, the story of Guo Xun's son inspired the movie "Broken Love" starring Andy Lau. On Tuesday, he revealed that he was "very happy and encouraged" to learn of the reunion and called on the public to support the government's campaign to combat human trafficking.
Chinese children are abducted every year. According to the authorities, the number of rescuers increased due to the emergence of new technologies. Last week, a mother in Guangzhou met her son 26 years after being abducted from the train station.
In the process of searching for his son, Mr. Guo traveled to more than 20 provinces in China, breaking several bones and damaging 10 motorcycles in a traffic accident. His persistence has attracted media attention. In 2012, he helped create a website to help other Chinese families find missing children.
The Chinese Ministry of Public Security stated that the police of the Ministry of Public Security helped trace Xinzhen's identity through DNA tests and also showed that they detained two people suspected of abducting him.
Local media reported that Xinzhen was abducted by a woman surnamed Tang while playing alone in front of her home. She and her boyfriend immediately sold the boy to a family in neighboring Henan province, where Xinzhen was still living when he was found by the police. 26 years is a teacher.
