A woman who spent eight years looking for her mum has finally found her after a Facebook post went viral.

Stacey Lee, 23, was just two years old when she was separated from her mother, Brenda Drake, back in 1993.

The girl went to live with her dad and two brothers but began searching for Brenda when she was just 15.

Despite having no luck in the hunt, the lass from Chorley was determined to keep going.

Recently, she posted a snap of herself on Facebook, holding a message board with her missing parent's name on it, that read "Find My Mum".

The photo was shared an amazing 100,000 times and within just a day, Stacy was put in touch with Brenda, 46.

The pair were reunited at a pub next to Brenda's home in Blackpool.

An extremely happy Stacey was quoted in the Daily Mirror saying: "It was very emotional and I was so happy that I had finally found her."
