Default Looking for person (Gibraltar)...

My mum and step dad moved to Gibraltar in a mobile home in the early 2000s. My mum was poorly and came back to England in 06 to visit when myself and my sister were due our babies and decided to stay as she was poorly herself and her father was ill and she nursed him until he passed away. She has since passed away in 2009 and I am trying to find my estranged stepdad, or anyone who might have known him, where he might be, he may also have passed away as he would be in his 70's now.

He had most of my mums personal possessions including all of our childhood photos, he contacted my older sister by phone around 2011/12 and he said he would return them by post but we never heard from him again. He was told in that phone call that mum and one of our sisters had passed away, our sister passed the year after mum so I'm sure the call didn't leave him in the right frame of mind.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post names etc, if not I can delete info and send by PM.

His name is Robert Graham Lloyd, he went by Graham or his nickname 'Rusty', he has red hair and usually had a beard (probably grey now), he was a welder by profession, tall and thin, Northern accent. He was born in 1944. My mum was Catherine (Cathy), someone might have known them when they were together, she was 5ft 2", short cropped blonde hair and was suffering with several illnesses so looked older than she actually was.

The last info he gave my sister was that he was staying in someones storeroom and doing handyman jobs to get by. We have no idea whereabouts, all we know is Gibraltar.

Thankyou

Hi and a warm welcome to the Spanish forum on BE. Myself and Fred James are the moderators for the Spanish forums whilst BEVS moderates Europe. Moderators are there to ensure that the site runs smoothly within the rules of BE.

Good luck with your search.

I have moved your thread into the main Spain forum in order to gain more viewings.

Hello Rosemary, thanks for moving the thread so it's seen by more people.

Rotor - Thank you for checking the white pages. I'm afraid there's no chance of me getting to Gibraltar, but if anyone I know happens to go I'll get them to have a look around for me.

You can't receive PMs until you have made three genuine posts, as opposed to junk, throw-away posts.
