A mother has been reunited with her son, 27 years after she claims he was kidnapped, after her sister saw him on the social networking site Facebook.

Avril Grube, 62, who lives in Poole, Dorset, says she was given custody of her son Gavin Paros after her marriage to a Hungarian man broke down in 1982. His father, who died in 2006, had visiting rights but took him to Hungary and Ms Grube has not seen him since. But Mr Paros met his mother again this week after being found on Facebook.

Avril Grube and her sister Beryl Wilson who lives in Liverpool, had spent years trying to trace her son, even contacting the Hungarian Embassy and taking their case to former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
