Kind of like trying to find John Smith in New York. If she has married and changed her name or if she has moved , it will be darn near impossible , but at least you are trying.

Yes-he knows
He's asked me to help in any way I can.
I know there's very little to go on.
She studied English here in Canada in 2002/3 when they met.
He went to Japan with her but his visa ran out and they lost touch.

No letters? No old address? No old phone number? No nothing? Name of the school she studied at in Canada? Anything we can use as a google search term?

Nope- his luggage was lost on his return trip
He had their old address and sent mail but it was returned unopened
I know
This is needle in a haystack stuff
All I can do is post things where I can and hope she sees something

So
Just discovered she wasn't studying here... she was working- my mistake-
At Mikaso hair studio.
She lived on Haro street in Vancouver and her old email was yokoyoko8@hotmail.com

Ebina-Shi,
Chuo, 3
Chome- 1-23
But letters are returned...

Have you tried contacting the former employer?

Your address sounds wrong
Must be

Kanagawa-ken, Ebina-shi, Chuo 3-1-23
243-0432 (you don't need the "T" in front)

There is no such place as Kanazawa-ken, although there is a Kanazawa-shi on the other side of Japan.

That address is for an apartment building and the address doesn't include the apartment number. It is likely that they would have moved by now anyway.

Please post to your original thread, there is no need to start a new one. Thank you.

What happens when he emails? Does he get an error message bounce-back or nothing?

By the way, I must admit I'm curious why someone would want to contact a lover after 10 years of no contact. Of course you don't have to share this information if you don't feel comfortable doing so.

Good luck with your search.
