21 Years After Her Son Was Abducted, Woman Finally Learns What Happened To Him

A California woman was devastated when her son was kidnapped by his father. She hadn't seen her little boy in 21 years. Now, they're finally reunited.

Steve Hernandez was the tot taken from his mom. His father had grabbed all the young man's identification papers and photos, then sprinted across the border with him and raised him in Mexico.

Years ago, the father disappeared and was presumed dead. Hernandez didn't know much about his mother and thought she was dead as well. He had no idea she lived in California and never stopped hoping that she would find him.

Maria Mancia was shocked and elated when police came to tell her a tip led them to her long-lost son. The two were brought together again in a tearful reunion.

Hernandez got to meet his four younger siblings, and learned he's an American citizen. He's moved in with his mother so the two can catch up, but he has plans to go to law school very soon.
