Appeal to find long-lost friend

The Galloway Gazette has been contacted by a woman who is trying to find a long-lost friend.

She wrote: “I left Stranraer in 1988. I am trying to trace my friend Debra Jackson who originally was from Belfast and lived in Stranraer. Her daughter was called Leonnie. My name was Debby Tanton and my married name is Debby Thompson.

“I now live in Melbourne Australia.

“I am trying to trace Debra Jackson as we were close friends. Does anyone know where Debra is?

Debby Thompson,”
