A poignant video captures the heartwarming moment a young boy is reunited with his mother after being kidnapped by his father for 11 days. The dramatic reunion saw 3-year-old Noah Clare rushing down the corridor to embrace his mother.
The investigation took a positive turn when Julia Bonin, a kind-hearted individual, spotted the young boy walking down a street in Orange County, California while she was dropping off her own son at school.
As she recognized the child from a social media post about the missing toddler, she couldn’t ignore her gut feeling and decided to turn back and call 911.
It was later confirmed that the child was indeed Noah. Bonin shared that her heart was pounding and even though she had a strong intuition, she was unsure of herself and shaking.
Police suspect that Jacob Clare, the father of the abducted child, is responsible for taking Noah after a court-ordered visitation in Tennessee.
Additionally, Clare is suspected of kidnapping his 16-year-old niece, with whom he allegedly had inappropriate contact. The police believe that after these incidents, the suspect travelled from the Midwest to southern California.
The mother of Noah described the experience as a nightmare, and there were moments when she believed she would never see her son again.
However, she was overjoyed to be reunited with her son and described the moment as the second happiest moment of her life, after the day Noah was born.
She wept tears of gratitude as she thanked Julia Bonin for being their hero and bringing her child back to her.
We wish the mother and son all the happiness and blessings in the world.
