A free people search on the Facebook social network has led to the reunion of a couple after 50 years apart.
Melody Longino, from Louisiana, met William McCrary while travelling on a Greyhound bus to Texas in 1957.
The two people stayed in contact for several years after meeting, but lost contact after that.
William recent did a people search on Facebook by searching for Melody’s name on the social network.
After finding her profile, William sent her a friend request through Facebook.
Now through the power of online social networking the two have been reunited after 50 years of lost contact.
Finding lost friends and family online has become easier than ever with social network searches and other online people search sites.
