Cardiff, United Kingdom, June 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- An emotional family reunion, made possible by specialist tracing agency Tracesmart, was featured in the Derby Telegraph and the Manchester Evening News for Father’s Day. Rebecca and Andy Bond were reunited following a 27 year separation. Even after this extended period, Tracesmart were able to search their extensive electoral roll database and reunite father and daughter within days.
Rebecca completed a straight forward application form, and provided the key information Tracesmart require when looking to find relatives. "I really didn’t think anyone would be able to find my dad with that little information" Becky commented in the Derby Telegraph, "I had always thought about looking for my dad but never really knew how to go about it." Rebecca was raised by her grandparents after her parents' divorce, and sadly her grandmother who she always regarded as her mother, passed away when she was a teenager. After having her own children, Rebecca started to think again about finding her father.
It was only when she started to look on the internet and entered missing person into a search engine that she found Tracesmart’s site. A researcher performed a people search
using the latest electoral roll and through an address search Andy’s brother was found, who happily assisted with completing the trace. Within days the father and daughter were speaking on the phone, and a week later their first meeting in 27 years took place. They are already thinking about the future together as a family, including Rebecca’s five children and her extended new family of aunts, uncles and cousins she has now been able to meet for the first time.
"We are delighted that we have been able to reunite Rebecca and her father, Andrew, after 27 years. This is typical of the type of work we do here at Tracesmart but it's always satisfying to see such a happy conclusion to our search. Unsurprisingly the local press were keen to pick up the story and we hope their coverage prompts others who are looking for lost family and friends to get in contact with us," commented Owen Roberts, Communications Manager, Tracesmart Ltd.
