Mum finds missing son via Facebook
Avril Grube is a mother whose son was abducted 27 years ago, but they have been reunited thanks to Facebook. In 1982 her ex- husband Joseph Paros told her that he was going to take their son to the zoo but, instead he took him on a plane to Budapest where they disappered. Avril was devastated and contact the British and Hungarian embassies without any success.
Last October her sister Beryl Wilson tapped his name into Facebook and found him. Mother and son have meet and are making up for lost time, the only problem they face now is the fact that the does not speak English and that they have to use a translator.
This is a story with a happy end and shows, how important this community websites are in the society of today. I also have a Facebook page and I use it to keep contact with my friends in America en Europe. You can find anyone you want and the fact that you can put pictures and chose who you want to be your friend helps you keep it the way you want. My best friend Ana Catarina lives in America and we keep track of each other via de Facebook. I also found a lot of my childhood friends and we keep very good contact because of this community website.
