RADCLIFF, Ky. — A mother in Kentucky was reunited with her son 55 years after a babysitter took him in 1965.
The alleged kidnapper moved to Delaware and then abandoned Jerry. He would later end up in foster care, and was given a new last name with an estimated birth date.
Years later, Jerry’s son, Damon Parker, took a DNA test that linked him to a relative in Kentucky. The connection was his newfound cousin, Will Barnett, who was then able to connect Jerry to his birth mother.
Anna-Mary Barnett and Jerry were reunited Friday with tearful family members in attendance.
