So, every day, he drew a map that could take him back home. He did that daily until he was 13 years old so that he would not forget.

Between the age of five and 13, Jingwei drew the maps in the sand and notebooks so that his recalling ability can be sharp.

Many decades after, the young man posted the map on social media, telling everyone to help him locate his family.

How his family was found

The police swung into action with his DNA sample and villagers were able to identify a family based on his hand-drawn map.

On January 1, the young man reunited with his mother as tears could not stop flowing. This was the first time he would be seeing her since he was four years old. Jingwei said he feels at peace.
