Dad Who Became Taxi Driver to Find Missing Girl Finds Her

Shaking Six-Week-Old Son

In 2015, Wang quit his job to become a taxi driver so he could hand out information cards about his missing daughter.

Mr Wang and his wife spent years searching for her in the city and surrounding areas, taking out advertisements in newspapers and setting up online appeals. According to Chinese media, as Wang did not have a picture of Qifeng he used a picture of his other daughter in leaflets as they looked similar.

"I cried when I sent the message", she said, explaining that it simply read, "Have you found your daughter?"

In 2015, Mr Wang chose to broaden the search by signing up as a driver with ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing.

In 2017, the family had a breakthrough in their search when a police sketch artist read about Wang and made a decision to produce an image of what Qifeng would look like now. He would ask each of his passengers any potential information that could lead to the location of his lost daughter, giving them a card with information about his daughter and telling them to share it on WeChat.

His unique method gained attention from the Chinese media.

"My biggest wish right now is that someday my daughter will sit down in my auto, and shout 'Dad!'" Wang said a year ago.




On Sunday, the DNA test results confirmed that Kang was in fact Wang Qifeng, the daughter who went missing 24 years ago. One report was seen by the daughter of Lin Yuhui, an experienced sketch artist and recently retired police officer from Shandong province, who asked her father to draw an image of what the missing girl may look like as a grown woman.

The sketches were widely circulated and a woman named Kang Ying living on the other side of the country in the northeastern province of Jilin stumbled across them online.

Kang Ying contacted Mr Wang earlier this year and learned she shared some traits with his missing child, such as a small scar on her forehead and getting nauseous whenever she cried. Further, DNA test proved that she is the daughter.

"From now on, Dad is here - you don't need to worry about anything - Dad will help you", he told his daughter.

On April 1st, 2018, April Fools' Day, Wang received the news he had been dying to hear for 24 years. "My daughter has been found - thank you everyone", he wrote.

"It won't be easy", she said, "I'll try hard to get back here, get back to Chengdu and be as close to them, as close as possible". 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.

"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", Mr Wang was quoted as saying in the Beijing Youth Daily newspaper.
