Taipei, A Chinese-American who had been trying to connect with her lost relatives in Taiwan thanked the police for their assistance in helping her get in touch with them, according to the Su'ao police precinct on Friday.
The woman, disclosed only by the name Donna, reached out to the police through the precinct's Facebook page on July 4.
In her message, she asked if the police there could help her connect with relatives who used to live in Su'ao, and provided the family's address and an old photo of her family in Taiwan which her grandfather sent to her mother in the U.S. 50 years ago.
The location was her late mother's home until she moved to the United States in 1961, Donna said, adding that she planned to visit Su'ao in the last week of July.
The police later set out looking for them with the information provided.
On Friday, Su'ao police shared the story on its Facebook page, saying they helped the American get in touch with her relatives in Taiwan, to her delight.
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me find my family! My nephew has contacted me so we are communicating via Facebook," the American replied on the precinct's Facebook page.
