A girl from Andhra Pradesh who went missing 12 years back, is finally going to be reunited with her family. The reunion has become possible because of her employer Vamsi Krishna, who searched for the minor's parents and siblings on Facebook. The girl – Bhavani – came to work as a maid in Vamsi's house. During an inquiry, Bhavani told Vamsi that she was separated from her parents when she was four years old at Cheepurupalli in Vijayanagaram district of Andhra Pradesh.

The girl was adopted by a woman and has lived with her in Vijayawada since. Bhavani said that she is very happy to go home with her parents. Vamsi found Bhavani's brother on Facebook. "I used to check the documents of people I hire. So, I asked the girl for documents to know her age. She told me that she does not have any document as she was adopted by a woman when she went missing. I asked her whether she wants to connect with her real parents. She said – Yes. Then I took details from her and started searching on Facebook," Vamsi Krishna said.
