Tearful first meeting as David Lomas helps Wellington woman track down the family she never knew – Newshub

After perusing more than 200,000 names on electoral rolls and cross-referencing them with death notices, investigative journalist David Lomas has managed to identify her biological father and track down his family.

In an emotional episode of Three'sDavid Lomas Investigates that aired on Tuesday night, Boderick learned her father's name - Vernon Avery - and got to meet his family.

Sadly, just after tracking down Vernon's brother Warrick and hearing how much he'd like to meet his long-lost niece, Lomas was notified Warrick had died in hospital.

But it wasn't all bad news. Boderick was able to meet her cousin Lesley and also got the chance to meet her other uncle, Murray.
