However, Zephany could not be found, but the pair of sisters never stopped looking for her

“I will never give up hope. I can feel it in my stomach — my daughter is out there and she’s going to come home,” Celeste said.

Years passed and the couple had three more children

Their daughter Cassidy was about to start her secondary school until they decided at the last minute to transfer her to a different school. Little did they know that Cassidy would meet her long-lost sister Zephany at her new school.

Cassidy and Zephany immediately became close friends when they first met

They hung out and played together. One day Cassidy came home after school and told her father about her close friend Zephany and how much she liked her. “Daddy, there’s a girl at school who looks a lot like me. I want to meet this girl.” she told Morne.

Morne was surprised to hear Cassidy and decided to do more research on Zephany. One day he picked up Cassidy from school and met Zephany. He was shocked to see how close the resemblance was. He remembers saying, “Wow, you look just like us.” Zephany and the girl were both confused and laughed at his response.

“I don’t know how I feel,” said the girl.

Morne went on to ask Zephany a few questions about her, such as her birthday and where she spent her childhood.

Morne then began investigating further about Zephany on her social media and it seemed all the evidence pointed to Zephany as her prodigal daughter

Morne later gave Celeste a picture of Zephany and Celeste immediately felt that Zephany is in fact her daughter.

“I have this feeling — I just grabbed my heart. This is my daughter! That’s my daughter!” Celeste said upon seeing Zephany’s photo

With the help of the police and a DNA test, they were able to confirm 6 weeks later that Zephany is their daughter. Celeste said she was speechless when police called her to break the news.

“When she came to me, I couldn’t stop crying,” Celeste said.

“I said I finally found you. For 17 years I never stopped looking for you. I finally found you”
