A US couple are hoping to be reunited with their son and daughter who were kidnapped 20 years ago.
According to police, Christi and Bobby Baskin were snatched by their grandparents, Marvin and Sandra Maple, in 1989 when the girl was eight and her brother seven.
Mr Baskin said: "I'm a little bit fearful of what they think about us, because they have been brainwashed for 20 years." His tearful wife added: "It's a blessing to know that they were alive and well."
In the late 1980s, Christie and Bobby Baskin's grandparents Marvin and Sandra Maple accused the children's parents of sexually abusing the children. Authorities in Tennessee ultimately found no evidence to support those claims, but in March 1989, Christie and Bobby's grandparents allegedly kidnapped them and disappeared.
