Was abandoned at airport toilet, this man finally found his parents after 33 years


Steve HydesSteve Hydes -  Steve Hydes was named as Gary Gatwick after he was found at just 10 days old by a duty-free employee at Gatwick airport back in 1986. 

And for the past 15 years Hydes has been trying to trace his birth parents. And through expert DNA analysis he has tracked the down. 

Hydes, who was fostered before being adopted into a family grew up with three sisters, has said that he has no anger towards his birth parents.

"I am happy to confirm that with the very hard work of Genetic Genealogists, CeCe Moore and Helen Riding we have been able to trace and confirm my family,"  Mr Hydes wrote in a Facebook post.

Hydes found out that his mother had passed away but said his father was still alive.  

"As you can imagine this is quite a sensitive issue to all involved and very new to us all, but I wanted to take this time to thank everyone for their continued support over the years," he wrote. 

"The work the genealogists do is incredible and for years they have worked so hard and it is thanks to them they are solving cases like mine."

With all the struggle that he has gone through in looking for his parents, Hydes is also working towards preventing other babies from being abandoned.

His story featured in a BBC Three documentary in 2011.
