Redcar resident Dorothea Connell is looking for an old friend and Southbank neighbour she lost touch with in the 1980s.

Her name is Kathleen (Kathy) Reider and she lived on Queen Street in Southbank, Middlesbrough in the 1970s and 80s but the pair lost touch when Mrs Connell moved to Redcar in 1984.

Mrs Connell believes that Mrs Reider moved back to her Newcastle hometown and would now be aged around 58.

Diane Johnston is trying to trace Brian Hill who lived in Northallerton around 1965 with his wife Jaqueline and their son Ian.

Mr Hill would have been in his mid to late twenties at that time and he moved to the Kings Head, Clack Lane End, Osmotherley in 1966.

He worked as a salesman, he played the double bass locally and Ms Johnston believes he may have had a brother also living in the Northallerton area.
