A Mother who had not seen her children for 15 years, found them using Facebook, the popular social networking site.
Her children went missing in 1995, and despite frantic attempts to find them, she failed to track them down.
The Mother, Iva Smorlbrain, never gave up hope, based upon the fact that food regularly went missing from the refrigerator.
After finding her daughter's profile on Facebook she messaged her, only to discover they had been living in the spare bedroom all along.
Apparently, the Daughter had left a note telling her Mother that they were moving bedrooms, which was never read. The Mother has worked night shifts for the past 15 years, and therefore slept during the day. The Mother voiced her amazement that her children had been living with her all along.
She also said, that looking back - she should have suspected something as she had occasionally heard noises like her Daughter singing coming from the bedroom when she walked past. She had noticed that the laundry basket always seemed to be full of childrens' clothes she had not seen before, which strangely got bigger as the years went on.
A Police spokesman said they are considering pressing charges for wasting Police time.
