The Kindness of Strangers and …. A Family Affair

When we persuaded the Times to publish my article about our search for our son, immediately TV interviews and articles in other papers followed.

As a result not just people we knew and relatives in England and Ireland sympathised, and lots of total strangers contacted us to sympathise.

When Paul’s brother, Bill, broke into Paul’s emails and contacted Paul’s back-packing friends in Panama, or when those people went off home to New York or California or Japan , they still sent long emails back to tell us what they knew and were full of sympathy.

After that, the boss of an Adventure Holidays company in America, Patricia Upton, enlightened us on The Darien Gap, and gave us the contact details of an ex-marine in Panama, Eric Nicholaison, who drove me around Panama City to introduce me to an indian, Margarito, in the compounds and we arranged his visits to the villages near the Darien Gap to enquire.

Patricia Upton also introduced me to James Spring who was a firm support over many months.

As for a family affair, Paul’s brothers & nephews & nieces were busy in support.

No sibllng rivalry there.
