The results proved that she was indeed his missing daughter, Qifeng. Wang even became a taxi driver in 2015, a move he made in the hopes he would pick her up as a passenger one day, according to local media.

In heartwarming scenes that have gripped the world, Wang Mingqing and Liu Dengying tearfully embraced their daughter, 27-year-old Kang Ying, on Tuesday.

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

His unique method gained attention from the Chinese media.

After years of disappointment, a young woman living on the opposite side of China saw an "age progression" drawing of Qifeng as an adult that Wang Mingjing had posted on the Internet.

Kang Ying was just three when she vanished in Chengdu in 1994. At this point a police officer came into the waiting room where this moment of carnal pleasures was attached to the woman and killer her daughter. Not having a likeness of how she looked later in life, he included a photo of another daughter who looked similar. It turns out she grew up just 12 miles away from her birth parents. A DNA test has since confirmed Kang Ying is Mr Wang's lost daughter.

They quickly arranged for a DNA test.

On Monday, Mr Wang and Kang Ying spoke for the first time via a voice messenger app, thecover.cn reported (in Chinese).

After finding her daughter, Wang cryingly said: "From now on, Dad is here - you don't need to worry about anything - Dad will help you".

He also announced the news on social media, telling friends and followers, "My efforts of 24 years were not wasted!"

Kang Ying could not deny the similarities between the sketch and her face.

The following day, they were reunited after 24 years.

"I don't think I did anything wrong because you're supposed to put God first and that's all I was trying to do is tell my kids to put God first", Dobbins told media.

Asked by a reporter what he would say to her, Wang said he would apologise because he had let her down as a father.
