4/9/06 Was Lost and Now Found

Last night, at about 1:30am, I was just about ready to turn off the computer and head to bed, when I heard the new email notification chime. The subject of the email said: "Urgent, Call Me". The email was from Claudia Perez' grandfather Joaquin. I picked up the phone and called him, hoping it was not bad news.

Joaquin told me that about an hour or so prior to my call that someone had walked through his front door, someone he had not seen in a long time. That someone was his granddaughter, Claudia! She had come home, and she was safe and healthy!

Of course, he couldn't believe his eyes when he saw her. He hoped that he wasn't dreaming. He said he now has his miracle, and she's right there in his arms again.

Claudia had been missing since 10/5/04. We told you her story back in November. You can read about her grandfather's search for her here:

When, or as appropriate, we'll share the story of their reunion.

Welcome home, Claudia!
