A MAN from Bacup is searching for his two adopted half-sisters.

45-year-old, Darren Goodwin, is hoping to be reunited with his half sisters Samantha and Carol who were adopted in Altrincham.

Samantha was born July 12, 1974. She was adopted at the age of two and Darren and Samantha spent the first two years of her life together.

Carol is thought to have been born on August 8 1975. She was adopted straight from birth and Darren has never met her.

The pair were adopted via Altrincham family court and David believes that Samantha has searched for their mother there before it closed.

David said: “I'm not even sure they know I exist, but someone in Altrincham must know adopted sisters with these names. Obviously, I have left some details out so both parties can prove they are who they say they are.”

Anyone who has information about Darren's half-sisters should contact the Messenger on 0161 848 5229 or email sam.editorial@messengergrp.co.uk.
