LAWYERS trying find the mother of a Huddersfield-born man have a new lead.
They are trying to track down Yousaf Ramzan's mother and brothers to enable him to return to Britain from Pakistan.
He was taken there by his father when the couple split up in 1978.
Solicitors appealed in the Examiner earlier this year for help in trying to find Ruth Farrell, who was born in Southampton, but moved to Huddersfield and gave birth to Yousaf at the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital in March, 1969.
A number of people gave solicitor Ms Anwar Begum possible leads, but Ms Farrell has not been traced.
Ms Begum said: "We have managed to determine that Ms Farrell has a twin sister and we have a good idea of where she is.
"I am in the process of trying to get in touch with her in the hope that she can put us in touch with Yousaf's mother."
Mr Ramzan has been told by Home Office authorities he must undergo DNA tests before he can be granted a British passport and needs to find his mother and his two brothers to enable those to be done.
His father Mohammad died in Pakistan in 1999 and now his son wants to return to the town where he was born.
The family used to live in Mount Street, Lockwood, and Yousaf was a pupil at Mount Pleasant School in Lockwood.
Ms Begum works for the Manchester law firm of Sandhill Solicitors.
