An amazing story has come out of the US today, Carlina White was abducted when she was a baby in 1987 from a Manhattan hospital, and has now found and been reunited with her family after 23 years.
According to the SMH:
It was an abduction that made headlines and stunned the authorities. A three-week-old infant, taken to hospital in August 1987 for treatment of a fever, was snatched by a woman in a nurse’s uniform and never heard from again.
Investigators were stumped and the case went cold. However, the parents of the abducted girl refused to give up hope, believing that some day their daughter might return. Their prayers were answered.
Carlina White, now 23 and living in Georgia, has been reunited with her biological parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson, ending one of the most baffling missing persons cases in the New York Police Department’s files. The reunion brought elation to a mother and father racked by pain and anger for more than two decades, and a new family for a woman who had long held suspicions about her past.
Last Friday, Carlina White and her family met at the Bronx home of Sheena White, an 18-year-old half-sister who until recently Carlina did not know she had.
