A man in China who found his biological relatives 40 years after he got lost and was abducted as a child was shocked to find that his place in the family had been taken by another person.

After getting lost and being adopted by another family more than four decades ago, Yang Changlin finally found his original home with the help of police.

However, when they were finally reunited, Yang did not receive the welcome he expected from his real family; his place in the family had been taken by someone else masquerading as him.

Around the age of six, Yang left his home in central China’s Hunan province to look for his mother, who previously had gone to her parents’ home in southwest China’s Guizhou province to get away from her abusive husband.
