They Spent 32 Years Looking For Their Kidnapped Son, Save 29 Others In The Process

Mother’s love is indeed unconditional, and once again it’s being proven.

While most of the time it’s a godly fight for the child’s well-being, this Chinese woman fought for many years just so she could see her child once again after he was kidnapped when he was only two years old. Luckily, there’s a happy ending to this story and Li Jingzhi has found her son after 32 long years of searching.

Mao’s father was bringing his two-year-old son back home from preschool when the little boy was abducted back in 1988. They were near the entrance of a hotel in the Shaanxi province when Mao’s father looked away for just a couple of seconds, but it was enough for someone to grab him and take him away. His mother, Li Jingzhi, quit her job so she could dedicate all of her time to finding her missing son. In pursuit of finding Mao, she sent out more than 100,000 flyers and told her story on countless national TV programs.

According to CCTV, Mao had even seen Li talking on television about her missing son, but he didn’t realize she was looking for him. In the meantime, Li also started volunteering at a group called “Baby Come Back Home” that collects information about missing children and helps to reunite them with their families. While volunteering there, she helped 29 other missing children to come back home to their families.

Mao was abducted when he was only 2 years old, but recently got reunited with his birth parents, who have been looking for him for 32 years

In late April, someone tipped the Xi’an police that a man in the Sichuan province had bought a child back in the late ’80s, Xinhua reported. The police used facial recognition technology on a photo of Mao as a baby, simulated an image that showed how he should look like an adult, and tracked a man in the city of Mianyang that resembled their simulated image. After they’d done a DNA test, it became clear that Mao was indeed the lost son Li Jingzhi had been seeking for 32 years.

Li and the man’s father, Mao Zhenjing, received the good news on Mother’s Day. Mao, who was raised by his adoptive parents as Gu Ningning and never knew about his biological parents, said he would move to live with his birth parents in Xi’an despite owning a home decoration business in Sichuan. On the 18th of May ’20, the 34-year-old Mao was reunited with his birth parents at a news conference held by the Xi’an police.

While trying to reconnect with their own son, Mao’s parents helped 29 other missing children reunite with their families

Emerging from a side door of the conference hall, Mao called out to his mother and ran toward her. The family of three broke down in tears in a long embrace, the livestream of the news conference broadcast live by CCTV showed.

“I don’t want him to leave me anymore. I won’t let him leave me anymore,” his mother, Li Jingzhi, said as she held tightly to her son’s hand.

Mao, who now runs a home decoration business in Sichuan, said he would move to Xi’an to live with his biological parents, according to CCTV.

Following Mao’s disappearance, Li quit her job and devoted herself to the quest of searching for her son. She sent out more than 100,000 flyers and went on numerous national television programs. She also became a volunteer, collecting information about other missing children and helping 29 of them reunite with their families.

According to CCTV, Mao had seen Li talking about her missing son on television before, and was moved by her persistence — but little did he realize he was the boy she had spent decades looking for.

There is no official tally on how many children are kidnapped in China each year. On the website “Baby Come Home,” a widely-used platform for Chinese parents to post missing child notices, more than 51,000 registered families are searching for their children.

According to Xinhua, police have found and reunited more than 6,300 abducted children with their families since the Ministry of Public Security set up a nationwide DNA database in 2009 to match parents with missing children.

People of the Internet celebrated the mother’s love and dedication to finding her missing child
