A Davenport man who hasn’t seen his sister in 65 years will be reunited with her, thanks to an 8-year-old neighbor and Facebook.

Clifford Boyson and his sister Betty grew up in separate foster homes in Chicago.

Betty eventually settled in the St. Louis area and Clifford is in the Quad Cities. 

Clifford recently asked a neighbor, who is in second grade, to help him search for Betty.  It took less than a week to find her using the Internet.

The pair found Betty on Facebook, and the siblings plan to reunite soon in Davenport.
