The girl, who was said to have gone missing, was found six years later in a shop. The man was able to identify her after watching the series on Netflix.
The dramatic reunion of a kidnapped girl in 2017 brought joy and hope to the hearts of many. Kayla Unbehan, abducted by her mother at the age of 9, was found in North Carolina, ending a long search and safely returned to her father’s arms.
Kayla’s disturbing story became known nationwide through the Netflix series “Unsolved Mysteries.” The girl was reported missing after being abducted by her non-custodial mother, Heather Anbehan. On July 5, 2017, her father Ryan went to her mother’s house to pick up Kayla, but she was not there. The case attracted public attention, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) added the girl to the missing persons list.
However, hope was revived when a store owner who had seen the documentary recognized Kayla at a mall in Asheville, North Carolina. The person concerned did not hesitate to contact the police immediately, who immediately intervened and took action to protect Kayla. Details of how she was rescued have not yet been revealed to the public, but the news that the teenager was found safely was a source of great joy.
NCMEC released a statement expressing joy at Kayla’s reunification with her family. The girl’s father asked that their privacy be respected during this time of recovery. At this point in their lives, after such a huge trauma, it is important that they are given the space they need to make a fresh start and regain their faith in the world. ABC.

This emotional gathering is a great example of the power of technology and public attention in solving missing persons cases. Lt. Diana Loveland of the North Carolina Police Department stressed the importance of not hesitating to report a missing person if they have doubts about the identity of the person, no matter how old the story may seem.
This is not the first time that a missing person has been found after a long time. Last year, 53-year-old Melissa Highsmith was reunited with her family 51 years after her abduction. DNA testing confirmed his identity and reuniting with his biological parents and siblings was an emotional and joyous moment.
