JUBILATION AS PARENTS REUNITE WITH THEIR SWAPPED SON

                                                                              
       Richard Cushworth, a missionary in El Salvador, and wife Mercedes Casanellas  made a public
plea for their baby's return after DNA tests showed the child they cared for since birth was not theirs.

Investigators tracked down the child by ordering other new mothers to have their babies DNA tested. 

The boy's grandfather David Cushman told MailOnline: 'We have our grandson - and he looks like his father'. Richard and Mercedes were seen celebrating moments before they were reunited with their son . Ms Casanellas,  says that she noticed something was wrong when the child given to her by hospital staff in San Salvador was darker skinned and looked nothing like her or her husband. 
Now they are reunited they would also like to keep non-biological baby Jacob . The doctor accused by the couple of being responsible for the swap, Dr Alejandro Guidos, was released by authorities today.
