Lost Daughter in China – level 2

09-04-2018 15:00

In 1994, a Chinese couple turned their backs for a few minutes and their daughter, who was just three years old, was gone. They looked for their child for 24 years. The father became a taxi driver.

He gave out cards to his passengers to help find his daughter.

After 24 years, police found a woman who matched the description. The DNA test later showed that she was the couple’s daughter. The family was finally reunited.

Difficult words: match (fit, be equal to), description (the information about the daughter), reunite (come together again), DNA test (a test that can tell if there is physical information about you such as if you are related to someone).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
