For over two decades, all Maria Mancia had of her son was a single photo, a slightly blurry image of a boy, 18 months old, staring unsmiling into the camera.Early this year a tip led investigators to Mexico and the son, Steve Hernandez, now a 22-year-old law student. He came to the U.S. Thursday morning and immediately met his mother.The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Child Abduction Unit had been looking for Hernandez for years, searching for him in several states.Cragg then asked the Department of Justice if they could hurry on the test, knowing it could take several months.Cragg and her partner Michelle Faxon drove straight to Mancia's house.
