The UK family's search for a long-lost cousin is over, after they made contact following a story in the Port News.
Sarah Goodwill was searching for her mother's cousin Terry Bennett and his wife Jo.
The Goodwill family got in contact with the Port News hoping that we could help locate Maureen's cousin the Bennetts.
The Bennetts were last known to be living in Port Macquarie but some searches on social media platforms has so far not helped locate the long-lost relatives.
After the story was published, Sarah said she followed up a post on the Port News Facebook page.
"We found them, thanks to you," she said. "My Mum is in tears. We can't thank you enough.
"A lady put a name on your report which I followed up and after finding one of the daughters who i messaged we know they are both alive and in good health.
"We are hoping to speak to them soon.
"Thank you again."
Sarah says her 83-year-old mother is desperate to find her cousin.
"They were last known to be living in Port Macquarie," she said.
"My mum cannot remember any names of their children but they did have two daughters who possibly moved to Port Macquarie with them.
"Mum talks about Terry quite often and would love to hear from them.
"Any help in finding them would be great."
Sarah said Terry was originally from the UK and his parents were Sid and Marie Bennett.
She estimates he would be aged in his late 70s or early 80s. They emigrated to Australian in the early 19808s.
"My mum visited them in 2004 when they lived in Harrington, but they eventually moved to Port Macquarie," Sarah said.
