a good place to try is on friends reunited, if you know how old he is and what school he went to it, might be a bit of help.

Try directory enquiries If he is on the phone he will be listed. Or if he is Ex directory they will tell you.

I grew up with a Chris Green, we went to St James School Poolstock. He lived in Chesterton Rd then, had an older sister named Elaine. If he's the one you are looking for he now lives on Keats Ave. Good Luck.

Have just read the last two posts and am in tears. I do hope Brett replies after people have found you for him. That's one of the most moving stories I've ever read. The very best of luck to you all.

Hi Chris, it's Wendy from number 34, sister to neil and Jeff. I haven't lived in Wigan for many years now but get back now and again to see the family. I live in Gibraltar at the mo. Last time I was home they where advertising your 40th in the local but I flew back before the date or I would have popped in to see you and Rose.
regards to the family x

come on bret talk to your dad if you could be bothered to sent a posting you could at least talk to him even if it doesen,t go well at least you tried. i always think supposing anything happens to your dad and you didn,t get in touch how bad would you feel.

I sincerely hope that Brett wasn't winding people up. That would be terrible if he has. There are obviously people out there who love him lots and are dying to get in touch again. Why did he post a message if he didn't want an answer?

here here molly that is what i was saying.does he feel guilty of something or what that he feels he can,t speak to his dad. COME ON BRET GET YOUR FINGER OUT AND GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR DAD.

now now people, Brett is now in spain and we dont know how difficult it may be to get on a pc, also it was over a month before i saw the original message and got chris to log in and message back, maybe he give up hope after 4 weeks of waiting, lets give Brett a break here and hope that he logs in soon.

Me too Jeannie. Am curious now. I hate being kept in suspenders! I'd've thought that once Brett had posted the message he'd be interested in the outcome, tha's all, and kept checking!

Hi Brett ,
Its your dad , if you read this hope you are well . We are all dying to hear from you it was such a shock to find you on here , but we want you to know that we understand it has been a long time since we last spoke , but it would be wonderful if we could speak again ,please think about it at least .
love always dad

yeah i thought bret would keep posted as to the out come any way we will wait and see what happens.

Thing is Jeannie. There aren't many people in Europe these days who can't get to a pc. I am becoming ever more suspicious of this. There's no logic to it. Something has happened in the past to separate father and son, and it's obviously left some bad feeling. But Brett was the one to come forward. It's obvious dad wants contact with his son and I'd like to see a happy outcome to this. Whatever's happened, it's in the past, so perhaps now is the time to move on. If Brett can. Also, why does Chris refer to his son as Brett, when his real name is Mitchall? Am not sure at all about this, but that's perhaps because I'm a naturally suspicious person. Should've been a copper mayhap! :) Plus,why is Auntie Elaine an INACTIVE poster? I can't help it. :)

Plus. Why didn't Chris respond to Wendy's post(AKA mollymop)? Read it again. He didn't know who she was but when she replied he didn't respond. If I heard from someone I hadn't been in contact with for a while I'd be over the moon! I feel we have now entered The Twilight Zone folks! :( Lastly, before I go up the old apples and pears, this topic has had 879 views! Think about it!

hiya mollie, theres nothin suss about it all, brett is his real name, i dunno why es put mitchell, theres no bad feelin between father & son, just a divorce that ended in mother emigrating with 2 sons and father with 1 son. Chris didnt come on here for general chit-chat he just wanted to speak to his son, as for Elaine, i think she registered so fast she overlooked that bit, nothin sinister, sure glad u aint a copper : )

as for everyone havin a pc now, not if you live in the sticks, also Brett may be on holiday, he may live in spain but he still needs a holiday. I know Brett will be in touch soon, maybe he is on his way to sunny Wigan as we speak. 1 thing for sure, there will be 1 helluva a party when he does come, Chris is a gentle giant with a heart of gold and this is his dream come true,we live in hope xx

Just like to say thank you to all the people who have tried to help me get back in touch with our Brett, and to assure you that nothing untoward is happening . We where a family who seperated many years ago through divorce , and we lost contact as Brett and his other brother Kyle moved away with their mum .
once again thanks and keep trying

I do hope Brett gets in touch with you again Chris, and the rest of the family. It's sad to hear that families break up like that and then move away. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Brett will read the topic he started again and be in touch with you all soon.

Can I suggest those not involved keep their noses out. If I was Brett, I'd be put off replying if I knew that every man and his dog was going to patronize the issue.

An excellent suggestion Tonker, some of them made me think like they were like the ladies that sat around the guillotine in France in the 1790s with their knitting.

Replied: 8th Jul 2006 at 01:43

Posted by: busy bee (631)

do you not realise tonker that the idea of doing a posting is to get other peoples veiws and ideas of a situation and to give an outsiders veiw of things.if no-one wants other peoples opinion then they should not post anything.as for you dave how old are you to remember sitting watching people get their heads chopped off.

ive been watching this like i suppose everyone has! cos we all like happy endings....thing is it may be too much pressure now.
brett knows everyone is watching!!
Chris can you post your email addy? i know you may get the odd hoax email (not from any decent wigan worlder tho!) but it may be easier for brett to miss all this which WE have created! or create an other email addy on ur pc and use it just on this, if u dont get anything after while just delete it.

Chris don't you have an email address that you can leave on here for your son then he can contact you privately ormaybe a third party email he can contact maybe easier for him
