How a mother and daughter united after 14 years via a Facebook message
New Delhi : A missing teenager has been reunited with her mother 14 years after she was abducted. The official reunion happened on Monday in Texas, though two had met each other at the border last week.
It has been learned that the mother and daughter united after a communication via social media. Jacqueline Hernandez, 19, contacted her mother Angelica Vences-Salgado over Facebook earlier this month and told her that she was currently living in Mexico.
A press release by the Clermont Police Department (CPD) called it a cold case until this month. On September 2, 2021 Ms Vences-Salgado told CPD that she has been contacted by a woman who claims to be her daughter. She also notified that the woman has offered to meet her at the entry point to the US in Laredo, Texas on September 10, 2021.
Following this intimation, police forces in Florida and Texas and investigators from the Department of Homeland Security laid out a plan to "intercept" the meeting and verify Ms Hernandez's identity.
As per a BBC report, on December 22, 2007, six-year-old Ms Hernandez was allegedly abducted from her home in Clermont, Florida, by her father Pablo Hernandez.
Now, the duo has been reunited and social media has played a crucial role in their reunion.
