the real mark maynard

Some of you might be too young to remember this, but a few months ago, I started exchanging emails with a girl in England. She’s 14 years old and she’s been looking for her brother, who also happens to be named Mark Maynard. She thought for a while that I could be him. I wasn’t, but I helped her to start looking. I put the word out through this site and we got a few leads. One looked promising, but it didn’t pan out.

I just got this photo from her in the mail a few days ago. She sent the original. It’s the only photo she has of the brother she hasn’t seen since she was one year old. The baby in Mark Maynard’s arms here is Aisling, the girl who is now looking for him. (How trusting is that anyway? If I only had one photo of a person, I doubt that I would mail it to a stranger in another country, especially America. I’m paranoid having it here in the house. I’m afraid that something will happen to it. I’m going to mail it to her on Monday, and I’m insuring it.)

Eventually, I’d like to get a special page up, a “Looking for Mark Maynard” page that people could link to. For now though, I just wanted to get the photo up on the page. If you’re reading this and you think that this might be you (quite a few Mark Maynards have dropped by to visit this site actually), let me know and I’ll help you to get in touch with your sister. If you aren’t this man, but if he looks familiar, drop me a line and I’ll forward it to Aisling. (note: I don’t know the whole story behind it, but I think that Aisling might not be the girl’s real name. It’s confusing, but somewhere in this whole mix is a violent father that she and her mom are trying to stay hidden from.)

So, please help if you can. This is probably the only thing I will ever ask you to do that’s even remotely important…. other than subscribing to my magazine. You should probably do that too.
