According to a report by the BBC, Gangtang's son had been snatched aged two in front of their home in the province of Shandong.

It is said that the son was taken to the neighbouring Henan province and sold there by the kidnappers.

China's Ministry of Public Security has revealed that the police were able to trace the son's identity using DNA testing.

Gangtang and his wife cried and hugged their son when they were reunited in Liaocheng, Shandong.

"My baby, you came back," cried the mother.

Gangtang told reporters that he believes life will be better now that the child has been found.

''Everything can only be happy from now on," he said.

After his son's abduction in 1997, the loving father travelled to more than 20 provinces around the Asian country using a motorbike chasing tip-offs.
