Harry Speath experienced any parent's worst nightmare when he discovered that his children had seemingly vanished without a trace.
Harry was excited to see his 5-year-old daughter, Serena, and 4-year-old Thomas as he went to pick them up from school. But he waited for a long time and they did not come out to meet him. The dad then went to speak with the school management, and to his complete horror, he learned that his children had not been at school in days.
A gut-wrenching search for the children began. Harry last saw Serena and Thomas when they were with their mother, his ex-wife. He began to worry that she had abducted them and disappeared, especially when he did not hear from her either.
Harry did everything he could. He asked the authorities for help and even hired a team of professionals who searched within and outside the country for the children. Nothing came up. The children were not enrolled in new schools and no information about them was found.
Three years passed but Harry never gave up. On the third anniversary of the day the kids vanished, he shared an emotional now deleted Facebook message. He lamented the fact that it had been three birthdays since he had been able to enjoy the family connection most people take for granted.
Harry expressed his deepest desire and hope that he would see his children soon. The story went viral online. And a few days later, the Federal Police showed up at his doorstep with his two missing kids.
Apparently, they were found nearly a hundred miles from where they vanished after being "parentally abducted" by their mother.
Harry has been incredibly grateful since then. He expressed his thanks to his many followers who made it possible for the pictures of the children to reach as far as they did. Having Serena and Thomas home again was a blessing indeed.
