A young woman has finally been reunited with her long-lost mother after a Facebook appeal went viral.
Stacey Lee, 23, was just a toddler when she last saw her mother Brenda Drake, 46. But after searching for her mother for eight long years, the pair have finally been reunited.
Stacey had tried all sorts to find her mother, but it was a Facebook post that eventually brought them back together.
Spurred on by her boyfriend Martin Smith, Stacey wrote a heartfelt message on a large piece of cardboard and posted it to Facebook. The post quickly went viral and was shared more than 100,000 times.
