Saudi citizen, Abdullah Al Zahrani lost his infant son 28 years ago while visiting the Grand Mosque with his family. He was visiting the Holy mosque with his wife, daughter, and 7-month-old son almost three decades ago when a woman tricked them and walled away with the little baby boy.

Even after all these years, Zahrani has not given up the hope of finding his son. Last week, the father approached MBC television network to get help finding his long-lost son Mohammed.

A few days after Zahrani’s story was broadcast, he received a call from an Israeli man claiming to be his son. A local newspaper quoted Zahrani, “So far, we could not verify the information given by that man although he told us a story very similar to what happened to Mohammed. This young man sounded to be very determined and said he was certain that he is our son.”

Zahrani said that the Israeli spoke Arabic fluently, was married to an Israeli of American origin, and had children too.

The only way to verify the Israeli man’s story is to perform a DNA test. Zahrani said he was trying to meet the man claiming to be his son outside Israel for DNA tests. He has appealed to the King Abdullah and all kind-hearted people for further help.
