    Kidnapped woman finds her family

    Carlina White, 23, was abducted from a hospital at 9 days old, but she was reunited with her biological parents this week, thanks to her own detective work.

    According to The New York Post, Carlina began suspecting the family she lived with wasn’t her own when she was in her late teens and realized the family did not have her birth certificate.

    Carlina turned to the Internet and searched for missing children who were born the same year as she. Her photo was there, along with an artist’s composite of what she might look like now. This led to her emotional reunion with her biological parents and extended family.

    “I just always believed that she would find me. That was something that I always believed in myself,” said Joy White, the biological mother.
