SAN DIEGO, CA (CNN) -- After 30-years, two siblings are reunited, after finding out they're both in the navy. They were separated as kids, and, after decades of searching, are together again.
With a quick salute and a long hug, these siblings closed the gap on more than 30 years. Cmdr. Cindy Murray says, "It's the greatest thing. I've looked for him for a long, long time, and now here he is, and it's just great." Chief Aviation Ordnanceman Robert Williamson says, "Never in a million years did I think I would be standing here in this situation."
The brother and sister are from Denver. They last saw each other in the late 70s when robert was only six. Williamson says, "We have different mothers, my dad went a different way from my mother, and we just lost touch."
But, as adults, the two never stopped looking for each other. Murray says, "I tried looking on Facebook but there are a million Robert Willaimsons and a million Bobby Williamsons with no pictures, and I wouldn't have known what he looked like anyway. So, I tried... we did a People Search."
Cindy finally reached out to her father who told her Robert was in the navy too. Cindy's chief petty officer found Robert and called him within minutes. Williamson says, "He said, 'Well, I'm pretty sure my boss is your sister, do you have a sister named Cindy?' And I just went silent."
Since that call two months ago, the siblings have been talking on the phone and e-mailing, but there is still a lot of catching up to do. Robert says, "Just the little things you forget to ask when you are talking on the phone, because there are so many things you want to ask."
Cindy says, "He's never left my mind ever. I always wanted to find him and now I have."
