20-yr-old man finds parents after missing for 18 years



A YOUNG man, Nii Quaye Samuel, who got missing when he was only two years old has been found after 18 years in Ghana.

  Samuel had been living with a fetish priest he thought was his father until recently when he realised the family he grew up with was not his.

  Samuel started a search for his mother and father, which turned out fruitful as he finally found his real family at 20 years old.

  Confirming the incident, confirms the boy was found after the media, Atinka FM, hosted the young man who recounted his story and mentioned all he has been through since childhood.

  According to the young man, he had been living with a fetish priest throughout his life and only realised they were not actually related after the man’s wife died.

  According to media report, obituary announcement of the late woman did not include Samuel’s name, which confused him until he enquired about this from his siblings who told him he was brought to them more than 18 years ago.

  From then, the young man set on a mission to trace his roots and locate his family, a quest that took him to a radio station where his story was broadcast.

  Report says that after the radio show featured Samuel, four different families called saying they had lost their son about 18 years ago and they were all asked to undertake a DNA test that confirmed Samuel belonged in the Nii Quaye family.

  The result of the paternity test was 99.98 per cent with Samuel’s father indicating that he recognised a birthmark on him and was sure the result was going to prove Samuel was his son.
