A British national is seeking to be reunited with his father after more than forty years.
Damon Ian Gilbert has been identified as the son of Sylvia Rita Hadlow and Joseph Gilbert whose marriage took place between 1969-71
According to information provided to the Times, Sylvia returned to the UK just before the birth of Damon due to pregnancy complications.
Damon was born on 9 January 1972, at Redhill hospital, Redhill, Surrey, England, according to the information provided.
Shortly after the birth Sylvia is reported to have returned to St Lucia with Damon.
“Unfortunately due to the breakdown of the marriage Sylvia left St Lucia and returned to the UK with Damon age 6 months old,” the Times was informed.
It is believed that Joseph was or is a hotelier and had another child, possibly a son named Michael from a previous relationship, the Times was told.
The only information that Damon received from Sylvia was very limited, as she never spoke of Joseph, it is reported.
“Damon a father of one son and two daughters, he has always thought about his own father; to find and have the opportunity to meet him would be simply amazing,” Damon’s partner, Sandra said in an email to the Times.
