Hi Letitia,

My name is Sabine Schroeder, I live Duesseldorf in Germany, I work with EC Harris Built Asset Consultancy and I am 53 years of age.

I met a certain Leslie Coupland from Grimsby ("biggest fishing port in the world" -that was what he always told me when his place of birth was mentioned)in Los Angeles 22years ago. We dated only a couple of weeks before I went back home to Duesseldorf again.
The only thing is, he said he was about 35 at that time, which does not match with the date of birth Paul Atkins mentioned in his request.
The Leslie Coupland I am mentioning lived in a rented house in Venice, Calif. together with a friend of his, Steve. He had a baby child, a girlas far as I remember, but he was not living together with her and her mother anymore.Lesley's mother had been a matron at a hospital in Grimsby (?), and died some while before I met him, he had a couple of brothers and sisters.He told me his father left the family without telling when Lesley was a child, and only showed up 2 years later. That did a lot of harm to the children. Lesley himself was very much addicted to alcohol - that is why I fear he might not be alive any more.

In case the person I describe could be the one you know also, I would be pleased to hear how he is today.

Thanks for letting me know.
Kind Regards
Sabine Schroeder
