According to the BBC, in 2015, Wang signed up as a driver for a local ride-hailing company He put up a large sign about his missing child in the window and gave out cards with information about her to all his passengers. Scouring city streets and surrounding areas and taking out advertisements in newspapers and online.

A couple in China lost their daughter when she was only three years old.

A decades-long search by Wang Mingqing for his missing daughter, Wang Qifeng, ended with a tearful reunion this week in Chengdu.

Wang and his wife eventually had another daughter, but they never gave up on the one they had lost.

In 2015, Mr Wang made a decision to broaden the search by signing up as a driver with ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing.

After some time, they found that their daughter was missing and therefore they started looking for her, calling out her name etc. He pasted a sign appealing for information about his daughter's whereabouts on the rear window of his vehicle.

His unique method gained attention from the Chinese media. "One day, my daughter may just be the person sitting in my vehicle!" he was quoted as saying, according to the BBC.

When a retired police sketch artist heard about Wang's story, he produced an image of what he thought Kang Ying would look like as an adult.

Kang, who is now 28 years old and living with her husband and two children in northern China, saw the picture and was shaken by the similarities between herself and the sketch.

Several false flags appeared over the years; a number of women who could have been Qifeng but were cleared after DNA test results.

She had been raised by adoptive parents in a nearby town just 20km (12 miles) away, Chinese media reported. Further, DNA test proved that she is the daughter.

Kang got in touch with Wang and after they got talking, she discovered she had some really unusual traits with his missing daughter.

"From now on, Dad is here - you don't need to worry about anything - Dad will help you", Mr Wang said.

He also announced the news on social media, telling friends and followers, "My efforts of 24 years were not wasted! My daughter has been found - thank you everyone", he wrote. Qifeng and her parents cried and hugged as they were reunited.

Wang told the Beijing Youth Daily newspapers: "I can't tell you how much hope, disappointment and despair we have gone through these past 24 years".

Asked what he would say to his daughter, should he ever see her again, a teary-eyed Wang said: "I'm sorry, Dad didn't live up to his responsibilities as a father".

Without wasting any time, Wang reported the matter to the police so they could look for her daughter.
