Homecoming for lost Chinese boy Luo Gang after 23 years

In 1990 Luo Gang was abducted as a child and sold to a family in another part of China.

Last year he vowed to find his home again, but, unable to remember the name of his parents or home town, he had little to go on.

Earlier this year he returned home after volunteers on a website for lost children spent months trawling satellite imagery, looking for a stone bridge Luo remembered playing on.

When he returned to Yaojia Village in Sichuan Province, a street party was held in his honour - before his birth mother cooked him a bowl of noodles.
