    I have tried to contact Long Lost Family’s Australia but understand this only ran for one series?

    Have also tried to get on to Long Lost Family’s in the UK, without success.

    Lost contact with my brother who left the UK in late 1960’s. Lost normal contact in the 1980’s. Have some possible information but despite numerous checks using different organisations, media etc have failed to find him. Two of his children are also looking for him and they live in Australia. Like me they have had no success.
