They did this with no real means to reunite them.
They announced that DNA testing will be used to try to search for parents and connect them with their children.

- They had put RFID chips under the kids scalp.
- They had clipped livestock ID tags to the kids ears.
- They had tattooed a number on the inside of the kids forearms.
