My husband was recently reunited with a lost friend that was searching for him. Due to the amazing power of the internet, my brother-in-law saw a posting on Lostfriends.org from John Hxxxxx looking for Robert Pxxxxx and sent it to us. We were unable to access the email address for John, but knowing that he was looking for my husband inspired us to dig deeper. We tracked down John’s parents in the phone book and was able to get John’s phone number. John and my husband, Robert were childhood friends in Florida. Robert moved with his family to Northern Ireland and lost contact with his friends.
Thank you friend finder! My husband and John had a wonderful long phone conversation and plan to stay in touch.

My name is Sxxxxx Cxxxxx, and I noticed that my details are still on lostfriends.org. They were posted by my friend Prxxxxx Rxxxxx about 3 years ago (I think). We are since back in touch which is great- just goes to show what you'll get when you're bored at work and google your own name!

My husband lost contact with an old friend that he was in the Army with over 10 years ago. I had been trying to locate his friend for him to invite to our wedding in 2005. I gave up on the search the month of our wedding. I started searching for him again in May 2006 and found that his mother was looking for my husband for her son. I emailed her and they spoke on the phone yesterday for the first time in 8 years. Thank you so much for helping me reunite my husband with old friends. Heather Pxxxxx

Anna Sxxxxx [email@example.com ]
I have just received a phone call from my friend Jeannine Mxxxxx in Australia with whom I had lost all contact some years ago. I made an entry in Lostfriends which she saw coincidentally last night. When she saw her name she couldn't believe that someone was looking for her and now we have made contact.
I wanted to make an entry in Lostfriends to tell the story...
Leslie Axxxxx [firstname.lastname@example.org]
I was wondering if you might remove an entry I placed on your website... The name of the person is Kxxxxx, and the reason for the removal is number one, I found him!... It was because of someone finding this entry on your website and emailing me that I found this former friend, and I'm estatic.
Maria Wxxxxx [email@example.com]
Today 30th Jan 2006 I got an email from an old friend I haven't been in contact with since 1993. I entered her details in April last year. A friend of hers 'Googled' her and my entry came up. The friend phoned my friend in Paris and that's how I got the email. I called it a 'message in a virtual bottle' which I threw out into the ether and it was picked up - amazing !!
Thank you & keep up the good work.
Vanessa Sxxxxx [Ivorxxxxx@peoplexx.com]

I reconnected with my best friend from high school (in the 1970's) after losing touch about 6 years ago. She is in California and I am in Alaska.
I was showing a friend how to Google, and put in my maiden name as an example. Your site popped up, and two great friends were reunited within a couple of hours. Thank you from both of us.
Alyssa Sxxxxx [firstname.lastname@example.org]
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your website. I’m a 37 year old woman from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. So far from your website I have reconnected with friends in Australia, Sweden and Houston TX who were all pen pals of mine. The Houston connection was in the last 5 years but the other 2 are ancient! I haven’t spoken with either of those girls since 1985 or so!!! This is wonderful. You have really given me a great gift.
Thanks SO much.
I recently made contact again with a pen pal I had met on vacation over 30 years ago. We corresponded and met again for about 4 or 5 years then lost touch. She was from Canada and I am from the United States. Through your wonderful site, I recieved a lead from someone in Russia who also had met the pen pal I was searching for long ago. She was able to give me info on her that was only about 13 years old including her married name. Shortly thereafter, with much searching, e-mails, and a few kind people who passed the word that I was looking for her, I recieved an astonished e-mail from my old friend and we have been happily catching up ever since!
Thank you Lost Friends!
My name is Gladys. I stumbled on to your site inadvertently. I found my name. I was thrilled to know that someone that I missed very much was looking for me.

Ester Axxxx [firstname.lastname@example.org]
My name is Ester. I have been trying to track a lost friend (Severine Bxxxxx formely Severine Mxxxxx), now for quite a while without any luck. I finally decided to enter my name on a search engine rather than hers and hey presto the number one link was to your site with a message that she was looking for me too. I have sent her an e-mail at he address given but I have had no response. Her search for me was posted over a year ago and i'm wondering if she has possibly changed her e-mail address. I have also entered a search for her just in case and whilst doing so noticed that you take home addresses too... I know we would both be truly grateful if you get us back in touch. Please let me know if you can help and I'll forward you all the information you need.

Thanks to lost friends I finally heard from my lost friend, Kathy Vanxxxxx, after posting a message on your site in 2003. Her daughter saw the posting about two weeks ago and let her know someone was looking for her. She had been searching for me for the past few years as well. We have talked continually since she first contacted me. It's like we have never been out of touch. Thanks so much!

After 42 years of "lost friend", you helped me locate him. I live in Australia, he in Florida. We meet up in New York this week for a great family and friends reunion. Thank you for making this meeting a success. Best wishes, Wilburt xxxxx
Good idea about letting my local newspaper know about lostfriends. I belong to a computer group and writers association, I will let them know also. I have already extolled the amazing "find" to all those who will lend me the time to listen. Since I have avoided getting on Internet for over ten years I now realize the virtues and wonderful things that happen with this technology. I would have lost a freindship, and in this day and age, those things are becoming more and more precious. Again thank you for your great idea and effort! Willie xxxxx
Angie xxxxx [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Just wanted to drop you a little thank you note. Because of your website I made contact with my best friend. We had lost contact over 17 years ago when I went to Europe. I listed her on your website approx.1 year ago. I had all but forgotten about it when I received an email from her. We plan to visit each other as soon as possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Bart xxxxx [Bart xxxxx]
Yesterday at 12.09.2004 22:42:29 I posted an announcement on your website lostfriends.org. The good news is that you site works well, because I've had contact with her.
Somebody she knew saw the entry and told her. After that she mailed me. Better story is that a couple of months ago I also made contact with my ex girlfriend. She was looking for me and I noticed by entering my own name in Google. As a result google yielded 1 hit for lostfriends.org. We now write Each other regularly. So your site does work!!!
