An Indonesian couple, who were earlier this month reunited with their daughter 10 years after 2004 tsunami, has claimed that they have also found their son whom they lost to the disaster.

Jamaliah and Septi Rangkuti were reunited with a teenager they believe is their son bringing their whole family together for the first time in 10 years, The Guardian reported.

Arif Pratama Rangkuti, who was carried off with his younger sister when a tsunami hit Indonesia's westernmost Aceh province in 2004, killing more than 170,000 people there and tens of thousands in other countries, was found sleeping one night outside the internet café his parents run.

Arif's sister, Raudhatul Jannah, was reunited with the parents in June after a relative spotted a girl with a striking resemblance in an Aceh village and the parents are now happy that they have found both their children.
