Stewart Oaks always knew he had a younger brother, but he never had the opportunity to meet him. He wondered who his brother was for decades until his family finally convinced him to log into Facebook and start searching.
He posted a photo of himself online, holding up a sign that said, “Looking for male born in Sioux Falls, SD [on] August 7, 1960.” He wrote down his email as well and shared the picture of himself for the world to see.
Within 48 hours, Stewart got all the answers he needed — and even learned a shocking secret about his long-lost brother’s whereabouts.
In the video below, we see Stewart and his younger brother, Mark Payne, seated together at last on January 18, 2018.
You can definitely see the resemblance between the two brothers!
Mark explains how he spotted Stewart’s photo online.
“When I first saw it, it didn’t have his eyes,” he says. “It had it from his mouth down and I looked at that and I said, ‘I see that every morning in the mirror when I get ready for work.'”
He even reveals a surprising twist, stating, “Almost our entire lives, we were probably not more than two miles away from each other.”
