Woman Uses Google, Facebook To Find Son Kidnapped Nearly 30 Years Ago
Two days ago I told you the story of the bank robber who got captured because the FBI checked his MySpace page and found that he had bragged there about pulling the heist. Today, I bring you a story about another person found - the son of a woman who lost him to a parental kidnapping nearly three decades ago. Found, also, thanks to the Internet.
The woman, Avril Grube, entered her missing son's name into a Google search and was led to his Facebook page. She sent him a message and waited several weeks before receiving an answer.
Now, she and 30-year-old Gavin Paros, who was abducted by his father to Budapest when he was just 3-years-old, have been reunited in his native England.
