Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
Investigators continued to search for Aleacia with no luck, but in 2008 cold case detectives developed a DNA profile for the missing girl using genetic material from living relatives. Software was used to create images that showed what she might look like in the years that followed her disappearance.

Then, in 2014, a woman with no ID and little knowledge of her background checked into a hospital in Connecticut. A nurse who found her lack of personal knowledge odd searched online for missing people and discovered the age progression photo to be a close match to the woman in her charge.

The nurse notified police, who took the girl for DNA testing. Three years later, the tests came back a match, CBS 5 reported.

In the years between her disappearance and her turning up at the hospital, Aleacia had been adopted and now goes by a different name.

She wished to stay out of the spotlight, her biological grandmother, Frances Ford, told the station.

The two women have since met, and Ford said she hopes to one day have a relationship with her granddaughter.

"I would want the world to know that these are the things that can happen to kids, and not every story is a happily-ever-after, and it doesn't mean that they came from someone who didn't want them or didn't care," said Ford.
