I AM trying to find a close friend from York. I would appreciate it if you could help me to trace him.

Tom Kidds is married to Debbie and his last known address was Barrett Avenue, Holgate Avenue, York.

He rode a Harley Davidson motorbike and worked in a Harley shop in Selby. He also looked after the Harley Davidson belonging to Alan Turner, of Emmerdale.

His local pubs were The Grapes (in the 1990s when Mick and Marie were the tenants, who later ran the Masons Arms), Victoria Vaults and The Winning Post.

We’ve known them for more than 30 years and we last saw them about 10 years ago.

My partner, Harry, has since passed away and I have been trying to find them for the past three years.

My address is the same as when we met Tom and Debbie. Harry was from York and from the late 1970s this was almost our second home.

On recent visits, I have asked friends and pub customers if they have seen Tom, but to no avail.

As a last resort, I am hoping someone may be able to help.

Kala Agar, Kayswell Road, Morecambe.
