Allan Healey was separated from his sister Margaret in 1954 when they were both very young. Nowadays, 60 years after he last saw his sibling, Allan is able to embrace Margaret in his life once again.
The 66 year old Scotsman spent years trying to locate his sister through birth certificates, agencies and marriage certificates. Unfortunately, he ran into a dead end each time as his sibling had changed her last name. The frustrated Allan was still holding out a spark of hope, so he decided to try a new approach – good old Facebook. He used the social media site and a 60 year old picture of him, Margaret and their brother Stewart. It was one of the last pictures they posed for before becoming separated – a black and white photograph portraying three little kids. Fortunately, Margaret was also looking for her long lost brother on the web and when one of her neighbors told her there was an Allan Healey looking for his sibling, she immediately contacted him.
The two siblings burst into tears when they met each other in Dundee.
