British gamer Harry Brown helped track down a missing American girl for 8 thousand kilometers, sitting in his bedroom at the computer. 4-year-old Yvette Henley was transferred to the custody of her grandparents, Gary and Kim Forester, by a court decision. Her parents, who take drugs, were deprived of parental rights, as the child suffered from "emotional trauma".

In July, the girl disappeared — her parents took the child and disappeared in an unknown direction. The police searched for her unsuccessfully for three weeks. And then the grandparents took the investigation into their own hands.

They began to write to friends of the girl's father on Facebook and got on 21-year-old Harry Brown, a supermarket worker in Surrey. Brown and Yvette's father, Virgil Henley, met through online games.

Text message from Gary Forester: "Hello, my name is Gary Forester. I see you're Facebook friends with Mark Johnson. In fact, his name is Virgil Lamar Henley, and he is the father of my 4-year-old granddaughter Yvette.

Now my wife and I have been given custody of Yvette, and the FBI's child abduction unit is looking for her. If you can somehow help locate my granddaughter, I will give a reward of $2,000 for information that will help her return home unharmed.

Please reply to the message or call back to this number to help my granddaughter. She's in a terrible situation."

Harry Brown (pictured) was able to contact the girl's father and corresponded with him for several days. It turns out that the police could not track down Yvette's parents, as they hid with the child in numerous motels.

Brown casually offered to send a free pizza to Virgil and asked him to give the exact address. The father who abducted Yvette agreed and gave the location. Brown passed the information to the police, and the parents were caught, and the girl was returned safely to the guardians.

In an interview , Harry Brown said: "I've spent my whole life on the Internet, but I never thought that communicating with unfamiliar people would help me find a little girl. Where she is now, she is taken care of and loved."

Yvette now lives with her grandparents in California. Gary Forester, 46, thanked Harry Brown for his help: "I fought every day with the local authorities, who did not want to take me seriously. And Harry, being 8 thousand kilometers away in England, was the only one who responded and eventually helped find Yvette.

Words are not enough to describe how grateful I am to him. Yvette is alive only because of him."
