Abducted man uses Google Maps to find way home after 23 years
A Chinese man who was abducted as a five-year-old has been reunited with his family - 23 years later.
Luo Gang was snatched on his way to kindergarten in the province of Sichuan and taken almost 2,000 kilometres away to live with a new family as their son.
"Everyday before I went to bed, I forced myself to re-live the life spent in my old home," Gang told Chinese news outlet Nhaidu.com, “so I wouldn’t forget.”
Two decades on, after hearing about a charity set up to reunite kidnapped children with their parents, Luo set down on paper the map he had carefully preserved in his mind over all those years, showing the layout of his home town.
