Thankyou for your message, Glen, which is the only one I`ve received since I posted mine. Like you, I tried his parents` phone no. and found it didn`t work any longer. I also tried one or two other avenues such as Directory Service without any success.Then I found the Flickenger web-site and decided to give it a go, knowing what a whiz Bob is with computers. I had no idea that there were so many people with the same surname, as I thought it was quite an unusual one!
I met and knew Bob in New Zealand before he was extradited to Hong Kong and remained in contact with him throughout his incarceration there and for some time following his release after he returned to live in the U.S. He also returned to N.Z. for a brief visit where we met up again. We lost contact around `96 after I moved to live in Australia. I wrote to him several times at the last address I had for him which was in Newport Beach, but never heard back. I wonder where he went and what has happened to him? It would be good to know. Let`s hope that one day one of his family will check the Genealogy forum and enlighten us.
