But man con­tin­ues to search for old girl­friend

The Star (Jamaica) - - News - SI­MONE MOR­GAN-LINDO STAR Writer

Af­ter Er­rol Sa­muels’ story of try­ing to find his for­mer girl­friend was pub­lished in THE WEEK­END STAR, fe­males have been bom­bard­ing him with calls.

But the 63-year-old said none of them have brought the news that he was an­tic­i­pat­ing.

“Most of them were seek­ing a re­la­tion­ship, while ex­press­ing that their heart goes out to me and what I am go­ing through. Some of them wished me luck in find­ing the wo­man I was search­ing for, but the ma­jor­ity of them wanted to know if I was seek­ing a girl­friend but I told them not this time,” he said.

Sa­muels gar­nered much at­ten­tion af­ter he sought the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in find­ing his girl­friend who he left in Ja­maica more than 40 years ago.

The wo­man, who an­swers to the name ‘Dolly’, was heav­ily preg­nant when he mi­grated, but he has not seen or heard from her since he left the is­land.

Dur­ing the early 1970s, Sa­muels lived at a premises on the Doc­tors Cave Beach Ho­tel, where he worked as a waiter, and met Dolly, who was work­ing as a bar­maid on Bar­nett Street in Mon­tego Bay.

He stated that for a few years he kept a low pro­file in the US and dur­ing that time he lost con­tact with Dolly.

“I will con­tinue to search for her as long as I live. Since the ar­ti­cle came out, I was told by so­cial me­dia blog­ger Dr Love that some­one had con­tacted him to say that they knew her and that she was liv­ing in the United King­dom. The per­son had promised to source more in­for­ma­tion, so I am wait­ing on that. I re­ally want to find her and play a part in the child’s life though,” he said.

(If you can help Er­rol Sa­muels re­unite with Dolly, he can be con­tacted via tele­phone at 203-223-8618.)
