The Ministry of Public Security has urged more efforts in cracking down on children and women trafficking. One of the measures being promoted is the use of DNA comparisons to help kidnapped children return home.
The Ministry of Public Security has opened a special column, "Going Back Home" on its official web-site where information on 60 kidnapped children is published. It's an important step in the ministry's move against human trafficking.
If parents find anyone on the web-site resembling their missing child, they can report to the local public security bureau. Up to now, seven children have been reunited with their families though DNA comparison.
Song Yanhong is one of the kids on the list. She was kidnapped when she was only nine years old. After fifteen years' wait, 24-year-old Song Yanhong was finally reunited with her family in Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui Province.
Song said, It's been fifteen years. People can hardly imagine what I've been through. It really was a hard time.
Song Yanhong has now become a volunteer in a non-governmental organization that helps parents find their missing kids. She says she wishes more kidnapped children can find their way back home to be reunited with their families.
A national DNA database has been established to help DNA play a bigger role.
Liu Bing, DNA database staff, said, You can report to the local bureau of public security where the case took place or where you lived. The bureau will set a case.
Parents must take a paternity test before they claim any child. No fees will be charged. Up to now, the database has helped 730 children find their parents.
