We all miss that childhood friend whom we are not in contact with today. One such friend managed to get back her lost long friend recently, thanks to social media! 19-year-old Brianna Cry was going through her family photographs when she came across a 2006 picture taken on a vacation. In the photo along with Brianna was Heidi whom she had met on a dinner cruise with parents in Honolulu, Hawaii. The duo had just met and were best friends by next day. However, the girls did not meet after that and ahead with their lives.

But when the old photographs reminded Brianna of good old times, she decided to resort to the internet for help. She took to Twitter writing, Hey twitter, I met this girl on a dinner cruise in Hawaii in 2006. We were basically bestfriends for that night so I need y'all to help me find my bestfriend cause I miss her and I need to see how she's doing now. Please retweet this so we can be reunited."

Here is Brianna Cry's tweet:

Here is Heidi's reply:

Twitterati took up the plea quite seriously and joined Brianna in her search for her long lost friend. Posted on Saturday, the tweet has over one lakh retweets and more than 2.7 lakh likes. And guess what? Heidi replied! 12 years later the girls met via Twitter. Now Twitterati hopes the girls get to meet somewhere. As the duo lives in two corners of the world, A GoFundMe page has been set up to cover their expenses required for travelling. However, the girls haven't set up the page and are not sure who did it.
