A Chinese woman by the name of Xiao Yun, who was presumed dead after she went missing 10 years ago, has reportedly been found. Yun has allegedly spent the last decade living and playing games in Internet cafes.

Xiao Yun, who was just 14-years-old at the time, vanished from her home in Zhejiang, China in 2005 after getting into an argument with her parents.



Now 24, police found Yun in an internet cafe in Qianjiang, China over the weekend after conducting a random check.

According to the Daily Star, she "told police she spent all her time playing CrossFire, a multi-player shoot 'em up computer game, and relied on handouts from others in the cafes or occasionally working as a cashier."

Yun's mother told the Qianjiang Evening News that she, in fact, had not changed her phone number in the past 10 years in hopes that her daughter would contact her.

Take a look at what internet cafes around the world look like:

Sales are down and business is slow -- small entrepreneurs in the Democratic Republic of Congo are bearing the brunt of an official clampdown on mobile Internet services and text messages. Internet operators remain powerless in the face of complaints from customers and have yet to communicate the extent of their losses caused by the restrictions. People, however, have found various ways of bypassing the restrictions although it has meant shelling out more. AFP PHOTO/FEDERICO SCOPPA (Photo credit should read FEDERICO SCOPPA/AFP/Getty Images)
