A man in China found his way home 23 years after he was abducted by pinpointing two bridges he remembered from his childhood on Google Maps.

Luo Gang was kidnapped from outside his school in Sichuan when he was five years old and raised in Fujian, hundreds of miles away.

According to a Chinese newspaper, he said: "Everyday before I went to bed, I forced myself to relive the life spent in my old home."

At the age of 28 Luo posted details about his abduction on a website which helps reunite missing children with families which led him to look in Sichuan. Using Google Maps he found two bridges he had remembered from when he was young and reportedly declared “that is my home!”

He was reunited with his biological parents shortly after.
