Kia Ora everyone. We are on the hunt for a missing sister. She was born around 1944 in Horotiu. Her father was Hector Horo, who was the biological son of Hakopa Hetaraka (known as Jacob Shadrock) & Rangiutaina Maanga (Ellen) Quinn - both from Kawhai.
She never met her father before he passed, but knows his name. She has whanau in both Australia and New Zealand who are wanting to find her and are unsure what her name is. We do believe she may be in Tokomaru Bay.
The family has just found two other sisters, so we are now aware of Hec Horo fathering 10 children - it would be fantastic to finally get everyone together
