'A woman whose three-year-old son was abducted and taken to live in Hungary has been reunited with him 27 years later after finding his name on Facebook.
Avril Grube last saw Gavin, when his father (Paros), took him on an outing to Blackpool Zoo. That was in 1982.
Instead of going to the zoo, however, Joseph Paros took the boy to Budapest in defiance of a court order.
Despite appeals via the Hungarian Embassy in London and the British Embassy in Budapest, and an appeal to Margaret Thatcher, then the Prime Minister, Mrs Grube heard nothing more of her son.Then last October, her sister, Beryl Wilson, typed the name Gavin Paros into Google and found a link to someone of that name on the social networking site Facebook.'
Read further, to know about how the mother and son got together and the son is 30 years old with three children. In the meantime, the son also had been searching for his British parent. At last, with the help of 'Facebook' they got each other.
Looks like a Hindi film plot with a good climax. But in reality, the mother must have gone through so much pain, when she lost her son. The mother's sister was instrumental for this reunion and she should be appreciated for her relentless search for her sister's son.
At last, they are happy and together and it is a nice feeling for us, readers.
