with all the social media available "online".... I have touched base with many old time friends and they have contacted me as well, but never considered them "lost" at all !

I have two "lost" friends that I would love to find.

One is a girlfriend that left Canada after Grade 11 and then moved to Australia. She had a moderately common name and I've tried searching for her through classmates and facebook with no success.

The other is a friend that I worked with after University. She decided to move home to VA. Just yesterday I tried searching for her through FB again, and no luck. I remembered her mom's name and tried googling for her mom. I am pretty sure I found the right person at peoplefinder (the correct husband name was listed as were the names of the 3 kids). However, you have pay to use peoplefinder. I'm sure there is a directory site out there where I can at least find a postal address.

Here is a story for you. I had made a friend at a woman's message board. It was a US board but there were several Canadians posting there. I had forged a friendship (via email and via the board) with one woman who lives about an hour's drive from me.

One day, i posted at thread asking for Ts&Ps for my friend who was having some problems with her pregnancy and had delivered prematurely. As I posted it ... this same woman immediately figured out that I was talking about her cousin. We emailed and confirmed my friend and her first cousin were on in the same. We later met at the baby shower.
