Five decades had passed since the incident and the family had lost all hope. But in September of this year, Melissa’s family got the news that she was near Charleston. After this DNA test was done. Along with this, Melissa’s birth mark and other signs also helped to prove that this is the child who disappeared 51 years ago. According to The Guardian, Melissa reunited with her family after so many years at a church in Fort Worth. Here he had his mother, father and four siblings. After so many years now his parents are very old. He himself is in his declining age. But everyone is happy that they have been reunited after so many years.
