Two American brothers who were sent to an orphanage and split up as young children have been reunited for the first time 80 years on.
Born in Chicago, Kenneth Corcoran, 82, and Edward Muir, 84, were left at an orphanage with their three siblings in the 1930s after their mother died and their father decided he could not care for them.
The siblings were adopted by different families who changed their names and raised them in different states, local TV station WDAY News reports.
Mr Corcoran's daughter Pam Gregerson, who lives in North Dakota with her father, started the quest to reunite the brothers a few years ago, searching online tirelessly but with no luck.
The search finally came to an end when Ms Gregerson's son Alex intervened a few weeks ago, telling her "mum you need to take a break, just go away, let me play with this".
