A man who was kidnapped from a vegetable stall in China 24 years ago has been reunited with his father. Su Bin, 28, vanished from Chengdu city in 1991 and was sold for $400 to an infertile couple who lived over 1,000 miles away.
Su Bin stated that he always knew the truth and was not very close with his adoptive parents. When he began a search for his real family, he kept it a secret because he did not want to cause upset. He submitted a DNA sample to a database, where a match was made. His birth parents, Ku and Lo, had traveled to different parts of China searching for him and had finally given up after a fruitless four years. They eventually had another child.
Ku says he never gave up hope in finding his son, often looking at a photo that was taken just four days before the abduction. Su was snatched when he looked away for a moment to help a customer. Lo spent her remaining days worried and suffering from blackouts. She passed away in 2011 with what Ku claims was a “broken heart.”
Su stated he does not want his adoptive parents to be punished. Police have arrested several suspects in the case.
