In search of family friend

I WRITE in the hope that the friend I have lost touch with, or anyone who may know his whereabouts, may contact me.

The person I seek is David Best, 48, who was living in Howdon about five years ago.

He has a son aged 15.

David was a friend of my family prior to serving in the forces till retirement when he visited us, but I never thought to take a note of his address for future contact.

Searching of the Electoral Roll for the area has proved fruitless.

I can be contacted on (0191) 238 6108.
