Looking for my bio father

Hi everyone it's been a long time since I have been here.

I have been through a lot this past year. I found out my dad is not my dad. After almost 40 years. anyway the details dont really matter. I am posting here b/c of how many people come to this board.

I am looking for a Robert (Bob) Goss. He was an xray tech at washington regional hospital in fayetteville ar. in the last 70's. I know he was to be transferred to little rock ar in the late 70's. So that would make him in his late 50's or early 60s. I also know he had a son about the same age as I am late 30's. I also know that he has no idea I exist.

If anyone thinks they might have anything please let me know. Please and thank you very much. This is very important to me.

I know you probably have done this, but have you googled? You can find so much......

You know, it doesn't cost a lot of money for a quick check. If you have a family member who is an attorney, they can check too. My husband can get addresses and any criminal records just sitting behind his desk. {My son's soon to be step mother: Two DUIs? Six names? 17 addresses? Lost custody of your 10 yr old daughter? YIKES and 10 of those addresses were motels}

Google is your best friend. It will lead you to sites that will list family members and you just dig away. You wouldn't believe what I can find when I dig....{she lost custody of 10 yr old daughter and then left her 18 yr old daughter ~ I found that from her daughter's post on Facebook ~ of course, her daughters all have different last names} Okay, DISers...I'm not THAT psychotic. Maybe a lil.

I'd start with the hospital or pay $75 for a first background check if it's important to you. I doubt anyone here is going to know anything. Good luck to you!

I would like to say, although your dad is not your bio dad, he was your dad.

I have been googling since friday night when I finally got his name. Thank you for replying.

I just thought I'd but it out here too. the one person that matches who I'm looking for (might not be him but still the best match) doesn't have a # on all the sites I have been on. I have paid a few sites already.

If I can't get any progress on my own by next week i've been thinking about hiring someone to help me. Again thank you.

'I would like to say, although your dad is not your bio dad, he was your dad.' This I know it is unspoken however what happened and the reason I was never told was just to save face nothing more. Mom said this guy was a great guy but she was just embarrassed. Ok I can get that but why not tell me when I was 18, 20, 21 or even 30??? she still didnt want to tell me now. even my brothers knew but not me. I am a little hurt upset and angry right now that my feelings wasn't taken in to count so forgive me if I feel like not hearing my dad is my dad crap right now.

Thank you for your help though

Just a thought. If you know he's an X-ray tech and you know the city he moved to perhaps you could go down the list of hospitals and medical clinics in the area, phoning to see if he works/worked there.

Also I've seen people post ads like this on Craig's list and Kijiji in the city the person is supposed to be in. Maybe someone who knows him will see it.

I know in my field (medical) and hold a license in FL, anyone can look up my name and see if I am in good standing.
You could try the states that require a license, looking up his name.

Good luck OP. You are in a difficult situation.
I'm not sure if finding your (for lack of better term) real dad is the answer, but I hope you can find some resolve.

Are you on Facebook? If so, search for the page People Seeking People. They have excellent resources available to them and have located so many people very quickly! I recommend heading over there! Let them help with the leg work.

Looks like we were thinking the same thing!

Seriously, those people are amazing! They helped a girl locate her father last night. Within 30 minutes of her asking for help, they had given her names, addresses, phone numbers, pictures, etc.
