Man reunites with daughter for the first time in 29 years

U.S. & World

PHOENIX, AZ (KPNX) An Arizona man has reunited with the daughter he thought he’d never see again.

David Armstrong said the last time he saw his daughter Alicia was when she was 2-years-old, 29 years ago.

“Right outside of Nashville, when me and her mom had split up,” he said. “I was asked no contact from her mom… unless she wanted to contact me.”

A few months ago, he got a surprise phone call.

“She hung up before she answered, but it came up with her name on there,” said Armstrong, who then called back. “She broke down, because she didn’t know what to say… she said that she was my daughter.”

He remembers her telling him she had been wanting to get in contact with him, but she was afraid he wouldn’t know who she was.

“That was not the case,” he said. “I explained to her what had happened in the past, that we needed to arrange to have her come out or us go out there and see her.”
