   TRAGIC Indianna Maddison died after suffering'major brain damage whilst on holiday

The anxious couple, who have another daughter and son, took out ads in local newspapers, put up missing person signs, and worked with police in an effort to find their young daughter.

Yesterday (Apr. 03), Wang and his wife were reunited with their daughter in person. Wang Mingqing's daughter went missing on January 8, 1994. He and his wife spent the following years searching for her but sadly failed to find their beloved daughter. Nothing came up, and as time went by, the chances of finding the girl got slimmer.

After years of searching went in vain, the pair had a second child, though they say they never stopped looking for Qifeng.

In an interview, an emotional Mingqing expressed his ultimate wish: "My biggest wish right now is that someday my daughter will sit down in my auto, and shout 'Dad!'" .

Wang's tragic story and his decades-long search touched the hearts of millions of Chinese.

After spending a few minutes at a neighbouring stall to change cash for a customer, Mr Wang returned to his stall to find Qifeng had vanished, the BBC reports. "I'm sorry, Dad didn't live up to his responsibilities as a father".

But a breakthrough finally came late past year, when a police sketch artist read about Mr Wang and chose to help by producing a drawing of what Qifeng might look like as an adult. It was shared online thousands of times, and eventually reached Wang's daughter.

Kang, who is now 28 years old and living with her husband and two children in northern China, saw the picture and was shaken by the similarities between herself and the sketch.

Kang got in touch with Wang and after they got talking, she discovered she had some really unusual traits with his missing daughter. He even used a picture of his other daughter to let everyone know that she looked like her. Authorities tried to help but DNA tests from several women showed that it was not Qifeng.

The details surrounding Kang Ying's disappearance have not yet been revealed.

He also shared the news with his friends on social media, telling them: "My efforts of 24 years were not wasted!" Kang, who had reportedly been told that she was adopted, lamented how she grew up in Sichuan town, merely 20 kilometers away from her birth parents. "Now we can finally meet again", said Wang, as reported by the Beijing Youth Daily newspaper.

As for what happened on that fateful day, 24 years ago, for now, it remains a mystery.

Surrounded by a huge media pack, Kang Ying embraced her parents.
