Hornchurch woman appealing for help tracing long-lost dad

A Hornchurch woman who has not seen her father since she was a baby is appealing for help tracing him.

Michelle Vowles, 26, said she has come to a dead end in her search for dad Steve Smith, who is thought to live in Havering.

She said: “I have a seven-year-old daughter and a five-month-old son and it’s since having him I’ve felt the need to find out where I come from.”

Michelle believes her dad lived above either an electrical shop or a greengrocers in Station Road, Gidea Park, in 1986.

Steve is thought to be 59 and may have another daughter 10 years older than Michelle.
