Jamie, a 15-year-old teen in Thailand, is hoping to reunite with his British father after the boy was abandoned when he was only two months old.

Teen, 15, hopeful to find British dad who abandoned him via Facebook | News by Samui TimesFacebook user Tawan Scheer shared information about Jamie and pleaded with netizens to help share the post so that the teen can reunite with his father, identified as Richard Williams from Ilford, England, according to information on his passport.

The March 11 post, which contains old photographs of the Brit holding Jamie when he was a baby, said: “Please help a boy to meet his British father. Jamie, 15, is now studying in Mathayom 4 level. He wants to meet his dad just once in his life. His dad went back to the UK when Jamie was only two months old, and he never contacted the boy again. Now Jamie is living with his grandmother. Folks, please share and help look for this man in the photo.”

After the post went viral on the weekend, Facebook user Tawan Scheer updated yesterday that Richard Williams and his family have gotten in touch with her, and the British father will fly to Thailand within three months to meet the boy.

“Hope Jamie will find happiness he has missed for 15 years. Good luck,” Tawan, who referred to herself as the boy’s aunt, wrote.

Earlier this month, a Thai mother and son found each other on Facebook after 33 years apart. They reunited in Hat Yai where the 36-year-old son lives.
