A Kenyan man, James Mwaura, who disappeared 47 years ago has found his way back home in Molo, Nakuru County, thanks to Facebook.

Mwaura, a now 70-year-old man, went missing in 1974 after he was sent to the shop to buy rice for the family.

According to CitizenDigital ,he reportedly lost his way in the process, only to find himself in Nairobi with no money and no friend or relative to turn to as he found that his brothers who stayed in the city had also moved

He then hitched a ride to Naro Moru in Nyeri County where he started a new life. Thereafter, he fell in love with a woman whom he later married and then settled down there

47 years later, Mwaura was scrolling through Facebook when he stumbled upon a seemingly familiar face. He sent the person a message in his inbox and it turned out to be one of his nephews!

The two continued the conversation, and thereafter agreed to meet up on Wednesday, before the family reunion eventually happened on Thursday, July 22.

Mwaura, who arrived home in a blue suit, informed the family members that he is now happily married and blessed with three children and four grand children.
