THE SCOTTISH SUN: Finders International unearth long-lost son of Scottish adventurer

Professional probate research company, Finders International were asked to locate the next-of-kin of William Page Mitchell who sadly passed away aged 89 in his flat in Glasgow city centre in 2010.

William was a former RAF pilot, had not made a will, and there were no known next-of-kin for the authorities to contact.

After some extensive research, the team at Finders International managed to locate and make contact with William’s 74-year-old son Andrew. The last time Andrew had seen his father was at his grandmother’s funeral – more than 40 years ago.

Even though William didn’t leave behind much in the way of value to his estate, it did provide closure for his son.

On contacting Andrew, he said; “While my father went his own way over 40 years ago, I’m grateful to the Scottish team at Finders International for helping me to finally close this chapter of my life.”
