An Indonesian girl believed to have been swept away by the 2004 tsunami has been found safe and reunited with her family at the age of 14.
Four-year-old Raudhatul Jannah and her seven-year-old brother were last seen when huge waves stuck their home in West Aceh on Dec. 26, 2004.
She was given up for dead until June, when an uncle spotted a girl in another village who looked remarkably like Jannah.
Upon inquiring, he found that a fisherman had plucked the youngster from the sea and turned her over to his mother, who raised her.
Jannah's brother, who disappeared with her, is still missing.
