Looking for the son of Peter Vance Kaiwai who was from Gisborne.

His son was born about 1980. I don't know his name or the name of his mother. She was killed as a young woman in or near Hastings about 1980 in a motorbike fatality, leaving this baby son.
This baby could have been brought up by her family or legally adopted to someone.
He could be looking for his father or siblings, (half).

If you know anything about this, even someone involved in the accident so we can pin down a date to search the micro film of the local newspapers in the Napier Library for a report of the crash &/or death notice and find her name & the name of her son, please ask around & reply to this topic.

Thank you.
