A Chinese couple has been reunited with their lost daughter after 24 years.

Wang Mingqing and his wife Liu Dengying were left devastated when their three-year-old daughter Qifeng went missing from their roadside fruit stall in Chengdu, China in 1994.

The couple searched for 24 years, taking out advertisements, online appeals and Wang even became a taxi driver in the hope that he would pick his daughter up as a passenger.

He signed up with the ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing and kept a large sign appealing for information in the rear window of his taxi.

Wang told Chinese media: “One day, my daughter may just be the person sitting in my car!"

In 2017, the family had a breakthrough in their search when a police sketch artist read about Wang and decided to produce an image of what Qifeng would look like now.

After the image circulated online, a woman called Kang Ying saw the sketch and thought it looked like her.

She had been raised by adoptive parents in a town just 20km away from Chengdu and had since moved to northern Jilin province.

After she contacted Wang earlier this year, it was revealed that she shared similar traits to the child which went missing 24 years ago, including a small scar on her forehead.

Following a DNA test, it was confirmed that Kang Ying was Wang’s missing daughter.

Yesterday (Apr. 03), Wang and his wife were reunited with their daughter in person. Kang Ying flew to Chengdu accompanied by her husband, son and daughter.

She told reporters in China tearfully, thecover.cn reported: "The whole world told me I didn't have a mother - but I do!"
Wang told the Beijing Youth Daily newspapers: “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."
