Sought & Found

We want to hear from you!!
  Please let us know when you find your friend or loved one! Everyone likes to hear about successful endings to other peoples searches. After all, they have been reading your messages daily and have been wondering whatever happened to you! Besides, if you don't tell us, your message will stay with us for a very long time! Unfortunately, most of the time, the only time we hear from you again is when you try to answer someone else's message and the e-mail address is bad!

We appreciate your telling us when you find your missing person so we can remove your message, but we prefer to put stories in here from those who have said how they found their missing person.  Even if we didn't help you, your successful reunions will help and encourage others.  If you have a story you want included here, just write to comments@the-seeker.com and tell us HOW you found them.

Here is what some of our viewers have said: 

Thank you so kindly for the use of your site to post messages in search of my brothers' birth father and siblings. 

Unknown to us a wonderful and very articulate outside source was reading your boards and able to put us in contact with the family we sought.  We
are most appreciative of the chance to get our search out there and for a special woman named Kayla for having been so awesome to have found and put
together more information than we ever dreamt possible.  Not every story has a happy ending but an ending is possible, I've seen it personally twice
and one out of two ain't bad!  Thumbs up to all those who work tirelessly helping those of us longing to know just where we come from and realizing
it hasn't been quite so terrible where we've been all along.

Thank you so much,


Thanks so much. I was able to find my brother in Germany with the help of someone from this site and a family friend.  This is a great site. I am in contact with my brother and all is well. Thanks again 

I wish to thank you for allowing me to post the search for my half sister on your web-site.  As of July 31, 2006 thanks to Dagmar Koch, another of your seekers and an absolutely wonderful woman who is still searching her own father yet gives of her precious time for others located my half sister within a week and a half of my corresponding through e-mail with her due to a mutual site www.suchmeldung.de we both had ads placed with and our curiosities bringing us together about one another more than a year ago.  Something put us together again after that brief meeting only after my father had sadly passed within that time I started searching once again, this time Dagmar found my sister!  Not only did she put me in contact with my sister she recently found the family of another woman!  I think it is in her heart not only to help herself but to help others just like your site and all of your search angels.  I believe my father hoped to know his daughter before he passed, sadly it was not to be but we both believe he would be very, very happy for us indeed to have found one another. 

So now life takes on another change, one that I cannot describe is most welcome.  Sadly my father never got to meet his beautiful daughter Dolores, he passed away in June of 2005.  I keep thinking how close it was and the loss has been hard for all of us but we go on to learn, know, warmly welcome with open hearts and arms and most of all love unconditionally our beautiful sister.

 Sites like The Seeker are instrumental in making hopes and dreams possible.  Keep up your wonderful work!  I would like to personally say thank you to Linda and Simone for your help and kindness.  I know there are many others working if you will 'behind the scenes.'  Please keep up your important work, you might not realize the lives you touch, but somehow I think that may be a part of the reason for you doing it.

 I think I might get to see my sister and her husband this year, won't that be GREAT!!!

 So, thank you seekers!  I have two brothers that I've also placed an ad for recently (Ad Number: 115265)  who hope to find their birth father or other family though we've also been trying for a long time.  If it's to happen it will happen with time, in this type of situation one learns patience if anything.  I also hope for Dagmar to find her father (Ad Number: 118466) and (Ad Number: 118467)  who sadly only holds his photograph and first name with a little information about where he was stationed with the Air Force when she was born.  I hope people will at least see the ad and look at the photographs, one just never knows...

 Thank you all most sincerely and most kindly!


Hi, I just wanted to thank The Seeker for all the help I was given looking for my son's birth father. It only took two months to locate him and we all have talked everyday since. We have a family reunion scheduled in Florida for the Fourth of July so my son can meet all of his missing family. So, I would just like to say please keep your faith and continue with The Seeker. There is so much help here for anyone and everyone. God bless and thank you Seeker.

What a journey! Because of the Seeker, and a wonderful ANGEL on Earth, I found my Birth Family. 

     January 24th was the exact date I made that very scary phone call, and my birth mother answered the phone. However, before that, my search ANGEL sent me so much great information, I cannot begin to thank her for this great gift. 

     I found, met and began the bonding, with my Birth Mother, a living Grandmother, and many living siblings, nieces, nephews, and greats,  all who wanted and welcomed me into their lives with open arms and hearts.  I am one of the lucky ones. 

   I now have a HUGE family to love, on both sides.  Simone, YOU ARE AN ANGEL on Earth.  The Seeker,  You are also a GIFT beyond measure.  Thank you so very much!

  Everyone who seeks, Keep trying, Be Patient, Don't ever ever give up.  

            God Bless, Mia  

Thank you just doesn't seem like enough!
I would like to say thank you to Bob, Simone and all the search Angels who helped. You found my fiance Barry's birth Mother. Four days after I posted my information on the seeker I was talking with Deborah. Barry and I have a beautiful 1 year old daughter named Madison, Deborah was tickled pink to find out she was a Grandma. Barry was also excited to find out that he has a sister and brother. Three weeks later Deborah made a visit and we had a wonderful time. She brought the polyester quilt she had knitted during her pregnancy 32 years ago. We all had a few laughs about that, but we also knew that it was something very special for both of them. We are already planning the next visit.

The initial drive behind finding Deborah was to get a complete medical history for Barry and Madison. Within minutes of talking with Deborah we found out that she is a breast cancer survivor and we were able to update my daughters medical records. Now, she and her doctor will both know to watch out for it.

Again, thank you all so very much!!! Keep making dreams come true!!!

To anyone out there searching. Be patient! When it is meant to happen it will! I believe that both sides have to be emotionally ready and Barry wasn't until recently.

My ad # is 117280 and I have located my birth family.  I posted my info on this site and came across a wonderful woman who helped me locate my birth
mother.  From there I learned that I had two younger brothers and a little sister.  I talked on the phone with every single one of them and was able to meet them in less than 72 hours.  I would like to thank everyone that was involved in my search and all the search angels are amazing people.  My search is over so please remove my ad.

Thank you so much to all those that have helped me to find my family. I like to give a special Thank You to Bob Crowter for all the extra time you put into helping me. All the stuff you found really helped. This site has been the best place I've visited. I will make sure to tell everyone I know about The Seeker. I will keep in touch with everyone again.

One night I was 'browsing' the net in search of a long lost brother when I came across this website. I decided to go ahead and write a posting about my brother whom was adopted in 1966 in Germany, I didn't have too much info on him but provided all I could in my posting. A few days passed and an E-mail came to me from a search angel with lots of name matches so I browsed through them and decided to start calling the matches...a few days later I received another E-mail with info on my brother's adoptive father! I called the phone number to confirm and am happy to tell you that my newly found brother and I have called each other every day for 2 weeks straight! When I told my mom about it she couldn't believe how quickly he was located and said that she always new there were Angels out there to help find lost family members. I believe that everyone that helped with info which was provided to me is truly an angel! Thank you so much for allowing me to use your site to enlighten my family's life! 
Thank You Angels!

Hi, I just today got in touch with the person I was looking for so could you please remove the searching for message. thanks! I never thought I'd find her this fast but one letter later and she found me. :) I've reconnected old friends and I think I've got extra hugs coming next time I visit my mom.
Thank you all so much for the work and effort you put into finding any information about Sonya.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Thank you!! I finally found my family!! I lost contact with them shortly after my father's death in 1968. I have been searching for them actively for many years. Within 24 hours of posting on The Seeker, one of the Search Angels (Simone) was in contact with me and led me through the process. I have been posted on so many sites for so many years and for the first time I felt that I wasn't alone. I spoke to both of my Aunts for the first time in 35 years. I cannot tell you what it means to me. Thank you Seekers, and Thank you Simone!!

I want to thank the-seeker.com for doing such wonderful work. Your volunteer angels found my message and helped me find my step-mother, an adopted brother I had not seen in sixteen years and two step brothers I was also looking for! We have kept in constant contact since! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I FOUND MY MOTHER!!! Thank you to everyone that helped. Incredibly this last search only took a couple of days. I had been searching for 3 years and quit. I contacted BC and Mr. K a couple of days ago and talked to my mom for the first time in 36 years today. I am eternally grateful to all at this site who help find people. This is such a wonderful service. Many many thanks.


After 27 years I finally found my birth father. I browsed through the website and found a link to some "angels". I picked an angel and the next day I was getting e-mails left and right. Needless to say I spoke with my father that night for the first time in 27 years!! The angels are amazing and I can't thank them enough for their help. Everything went well and I am planning a trip in July to meet my family.

Miracles DO happen.  I will never forget that.  I have been looking for my dad's best friend in Vietnam, Fernando "Fred" Paez for my father, David Santaw.  I'm not sure who found him, but I received an email from him and his wife on Friday, 6/24/05 (sent by them on Thursday, 6/23/05). My dad and Fred spoke for the first time in 38 years on Friday morning.  They plan to get together next February. It was absolutely incredible to find him, and I thank all who read my message and those who looked for him, and I thank God for getting them connected.  I'm not sure if an angel from this site helped, but I can't help but think so. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks to my Angel Mr. Bob!!!!!!!!!!!  I placed my add on line and the next day Mr. Bob e-mailed me.  He found my brother that I haven't seen or heard of in 26 years!!!  We have now reconnected and are never going to "lose" each other again!! Please remove my add:  #114487. Thank you once again,

Teresa A. McCann

Thanks for all the help seekers!  It is due to your web site, that I found my sister, Dawn Chere' Jackson.  We have spoken.  She and I will be setting a time up to meet.  I will bring with me the majority of my siblings.  She'd like to meet them first, then her dad, then the rest of the family.  I say hooray.  It was a joy speaking with her.  
Thanks again Paula Melvin, L.M.T.

I finally found my birth father, after we have been separated for almost 18 years!!!  I used several adoption sites to do it, but it's been so wonderful to have found him.   Next line of work is to locate my brother.  It's been 6 or 7 years since I've seen him and I'd really like to find him as well.  Thanks for such wonderful sites like this, millions of miracles have happened!!  Thanks for what you do to help people, like myself, who've been searching for so long to find their birth parents!!!  It's really remarkable what you do to help us!!  May God bless you in all that you do!!!  Thanks again,

Anita Young

I want to thank the angels at this site for finding my father for me whom I haven't seen in 17 years. They not only found him, they found my aunt, my sister, my brother, my grandmother and my uncle.  A family that I didn't know I had.  Simone is the one that helped me out the most.  I can now rest better and hope to fly or drive to see them all this summer.  I couldn't have done this alone.  Every site I went to wanted money but not this one.  I'm on a low income and don't have a lot of money so thank you so much for helping people without being greedy!  The Lord will bless you well!! THANK YOU,  Angela Russell 

I found my birth sister thanks to your site and several search Angels.  The first Angel who contacted me was able to find my sister’s birth date.  The second actually gave me her name and her Parent’s current address and phone number.  I began searching for her and three weeks later I spoke to her for an hour.  Thank you and everyone who helps those looking for loved ones.  My family is finally whole.

I want to thank a special person at "The Seeker."  Bob E-mailed, me telling me he used Classmates dot com to look up a potential match to my search.  Well, that in return gave me the brainstorm I needed!!  I should just call the school and ask if they had a student graduate with that 1st name (1st name is all I had to go on, other than the school and year of graduation) and low and behold, they gave me his name and his parent's name as well, I also talked to the school library and they have a school yearbook with his picture!!! I am so excited!!!  Thanks to The Seeker and Bob!!!

Thanks To Everyone At This Site.  Thanks To You All, I Have Found My Father And Grandmother.  I Got To Talk To My Dad For The First Time In 31 Years On 7/25/04 And My Grandmother 7/24/04 For The First Time.

DAVID & TRISHA BRADBERRY, life is good , peace to all.

Thirteen years had past and I hadn't been in contact with my father or my four little sisters.  For a long time I placed countless messages on numerous search sights and came up empty handed.   Completely frustrated and almost at a loss for hope, I stumbled across The Seeker; I figured one more ad wouldn't hurt.  

Less than 24hrs. I had an exact address to my fathers residence.  The phone number to the house was unlisted, so I went on a hunch. I got a couple of friends and I took the short trip which felt like a life time; I just had to see for myself.  I walked upon a door step completely numb not knowing who or what to expect, and I was at a loss for words when it came to the moment of truth. 

 After thirteen years I found the missing pieces to my puzzled life.  I found my baby sisters!!! I'm still dumb-found, but at the same time...no one can wipe this smile off of my face; I'm a big sister now, literally... it feels good.  I want to give much thankx to Simone... Without your dedicated time and help, this day would've never existed.  My little sisters put this smile on my face, but you made that possible.  I'm so thankful for your help and the help of The Seeker.  You're heaven sent from my perspective.
