Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

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

December 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.
