Parents Reunite with Son Who Was Kidnapped 32 Years Ago

A Chinese man who was abducted as a toddler has been reunited with his parents 32 years later - thanks to facial recognition software.

In 1988, Mao Yin was abducted at the age of two and sold to another couple. His biological parents spent the next 30 years searching for him, posting fliers and even appearing on television. Last month, authorities used facial recognition technology to match baby photos of Mao Yin with a 34-year-old man named Gu Ningning. 

A DNA test later confirmed that he was the missing child. The family was reunited this week, with Yin's mother calling it "the best gift I have ever got on Mother's Day".

What do you think the family will catch up on first? What other ways will facial recognition tech be used in the future?
