A teenager who went missing as a child and was later adopted has been reunited with her birth family in China after 13 years.
The tearful reunion took place at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on Sunday, Guang Ming Daily reported.
Eighteen-year-old Kylee Bowers, whose birth name is Liang Jinglang, got lost on her way home in Zhongshan, Guangdong, in 2005.

As she could not give police many details, she was sent to the Zhongshan Children’s Welfare Institute and was adopted by an American couple when she was 12.
In April, Bowers contacted the media and a website that reunites parents with their missing children. Her biological father read about her story and contacted her in May.
Communication and a DNA test followed, confirming his paternity.
