On the same day that Ahmadi and his family were separated from the infant, driver Safi slipped through the gates of Kabul Airport after dropping off his brother’s family, which was also due to be evacuated.

Safi said he found Sohail crying alone on the ground, and after he failed to find his parents inside the airport, he decided to take him home to his wife and children.

Safi added that he took the child to the doctor to examine him after finding him, and soon the infant became a member of the family.

The family named the child Muhammad Abed, and published his picture with the pictures of her children on a page on "".

After publishing a report "Reuters" About the missing child, some of Safi’s neighbors, who noticed his return from the airport months ago with a baby, got to know the photos, and posted comments about his whereabouts on a translated copy of the report.

Ahmadi asked his relatives residing in Afghanistan, including his father-in-law, Muhammad Qasim Rizvi, 67, who lives in the northeastern province of Badakhshan, to search for Safi and demand that the child be returned to the family.

Razavi said that he traveled for two days to the capital, bringing gifts, including a slaughtered lamb, several kilograms of nuts, and some clothes for Safi and his family.

But Safi’s brother, who was evacuated to California, said Safi and his family had not applied to enter the United States.

The baby’s family asked for help Red Cross whose goals include a reunion of their International Crisis Team, but said it had received little information from him, and a spokesperson for the Red Cross said the organization does not comment on individual cases.

Finally, feeling that all options had run out, Razavi called the local Taliban police to report the kidnapping of the child.

Safi said to"Reuters" He denied the accusations in his statements to the police, and that he is taking care of the child and has not kidnapped him.

The police investigated the report, and the local police chief told"Reuters" He helped arrange a settlement that included an agreement that both sides signed with fingerprints.

Razavi said the child’s family eventually agreed to net compensation of around 100,000 Afghanis ($950) for expenses he spent looking after the child over the course of five months.

Razavi said that Safi and his family were deeply saddened by the loss of Sohail. He added: "Hamed Safi and his wife were crying. And I cried too. But I reassured them that you are young and God will give you a child. Not just one, but a number of boys. She thanked them for saving the child from the airport".
