Abusali Sithi, a resident of Ampara is claiming that she has found her son who was five years old when he went missing in the deadly 2004 tsunami.

She told reporters at her residence today that she had never stopped looking for her son after he went missing and she was later told that he was seen at a local hospital.

However, when she visited the hospital she learned that her son had been taken away by a Sinhalese family.

Abusali Sithi said she continued her determination to locate her son but had very little support from the Police or the Human Rights Commission.

Eventually, she received information about his whereabouts and attempted to visit him at school to confirm his identity but the school authorities refused to allow her to meet him.

Sithi said she later established contact with him promising him employment and later revealed to him some unique marks on his body.

The boy had left the house he was staying in and went to see the woman claiming to be his mother and able to speak only in Sinhala had told reporters that he was convinced the woman was his mother and was happy to be reunited after 16 years.

    Will not a DNA test prove it?

    Great ending to a sad story!

    IF its true, super, what joy for the mother. But let a DNA authenticate it. That will lay to rest any doubts

    This shows the level to which the law enforcement has come. In a western country the police would have intervened and muted a just solution with courts either by DNA or other means. Here the mother had to jump so many hoops to get her son.

    Very simple.. where is racism here.. Hope our people would understand.. Only politicians gain by promoting racism! Its all the society that makes a person who he /she is

    The least the Mother and Son could do is to thank the people who came forward to take the stranded boy under their custody and give him solace looking after him upto this time otherwise he would have ended in an orphanage

    Very good for all of them , and hope they will live a happy life. More so, here is an excellent example of how interracial co-habitation should be, sans decadent politics.

    DNA essential to prove the supposed mother met the rightful son. Let us wait for results.
