A father's nightmare has come to an end.
A Hatian native staying in Kentucky received news Friday that his 12-year old son is alive.
Chourbert Remy and his wife came to Kentucky for a Christmas visit to their daughters. Both attend school in the US.
Their son, Mikael, stayed behind in Haiti with friends.
Since the quake, Remy has had no contact with his son until this morning.
Family members were able to contact Remy and give him the news that all of his family, his church members and son are alive and well.
