Man in China reunited with son snatched 24 years ago


A Chinese man has been reunited with his son after a 24-year search that saw him travel over 500,000km (310,000 mi) on a motorbike across the country.


Guo Gangtang's son had been snatched aged two by human traffickers in front of their home in the province of Shandong.


His son's disappearance actually inspired a movie in 2015, which starred Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau.


Child abductions are a big problem in China, with thousands taken every year.


According to China's Ministry of Public Security, the police were able to trace the son's identity using DNA testing. Two suspects were later tracked down and arrested, said a Global Times report.


The suspects, who were dating at the time, had planned to kidnap a child with the intention of selling him for money, said a report by China News.
