It took adoptee Joe Jenkins all of half a minute to track down his birth father.
He found his mum but there was no trace of his dad until one night he happened upon website Genes Reunited, which traces family trees.
Within 30 seconds two matches were found – one was his cousin and the other his half-brother, who was living with his dad in Rhyl, Wales.
Plucking up the courage he contacted his newly-found relative who passed him on to his dad and the pair spoke for the first time in three decades and arranged to meet. [Link]
