“I believe this man is my father who I’ve never met,” Abbott told the Olive Press this week.

“The woman is my mother Christine Oakes (Christine Abbott) who sadly passed away in 2015.

“I don’t have a name for the man only the picture…however I do know he made a call to Glenroyd Hospital Whitegate Drive on April 18 the day I was born to ask Christine what she had named me.”

He added: “Any leads would be fantastic… It’s a long shot but you never know.
