A 13-year-old boy from Kenya who featured in a missing child social media campaign launched by Serie A side AS Roma when unveiling Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been found and returned to his family.
The latest development comes after a girl from London was found after appearing next to the Serie A side's new signing, defender Mert Cetin.
Roma launched the campaign in July together with Missing child Kenya (a community platform to share timely factual information about MISSING CHILDREN ONLY across Kenya) and the latest news gives hope to the family of the lost children who is looking to reunite with the kids.
30-year-old Mkhitaryan joined Roma on a season-long loan from English Premier League side Arsenal after a disappointing 18-months at The Emirates.
He scored on his Serie A debut over the weekend when they beat Sassuolo 4-2-the same day the Kenyan boy was found.
Apart from the Missing Child Kenya, the three-time Serie A winners have partnered with US-based National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Telefono Azzurro for the summer initiative.
