Family in China find long-lost daughter

Family in China find long-lost daughter

They remained in Chengdu, hoping it would increase the chances that Qifeng would find them, and in 2015, Wang began driving for the Uber-like Didi Chuxing and spreading the word.

On the day Qifeng went missing, Wang had ran out of change and briefly went to a neighbouring stall to change money for a customer. They spent all day searching for Qifeng, but when they finally went home at 1 a.m., all they could do was weep.

Soon the story started gaining momentum and Chinese media reported about the case of the missing daughter. "My wife has taken out the necklace her mother left her and will wear it especially for our daughter".

Since their daughter vanished that day back in 1994, the couple have never given up hope of finding her with Mr Wang even taking a job as a taxi driver in the hope she would one day be a passenger.

"It won't be easy", she said, "I'll try hard to get back here, get back to Chengdu and be as close to them, as close as possible". During his time there, he put up a sign on the window of his vehicle asking people for more information on his missing daughter.

"In the past two years, I've been waiting for just one passenger-my missing daughter. I'm sorry, Dad didn't live up to his responsibilities as a father".

It was this the massive media coverage that ultimately helped Wang Mingqing fulfil his greatest dream.

However, there was a breakthrough in the search late previous year when a police sketch artist, who read about the family's plight, produced a drawing of what Qifeng might look like as an adult.

The picture, which was circulated online, caught the attention of a woman in Jilin - a province thousands of kilometres from Sichuan province.

Kang Ying contacted Mr Wang earlier this year and learned she shared some traits with his missing child, such as a small scar on her forehead and getting nauseous whenever she cried.

Photos from the occasion showed a tearful Kang Ying hugging her family as a crush of photographers surrounded them. There was something about Kang Ying, though...

He also announced the news on social media, telling friends and followers, "My efforts of 24 years were not wasted!"

"I can't tell you how much hope, disappointment and despair we have gone through these past 24 years. Now we can finally meet again", Mr Wang told the Beijing Youth Daily.

Kang grew up in a loving adoptive family in a town just 20km away and had no recollection about how she ended up there. The DNA test results confirmed that she was indeed Wang's long-lost daughter. She has yet to offer any details on how she got there or how she became separated from her family.
