96-year-old Barbara Cook is looking for Christian Oliver Dann Jr. — who was born in 1916, and left the Cedar Springs/Sand Lake, Michigan area in 1939.

Barbara Cook never heard from him again.

According to the Facebook page established for her, growing up, Barbara and Christian were always very close.

Barbara is hoping for any information on her brother that will, after 70-plus years, give her some closure.

According to FOX6’s sister station, FOX17 in Michigan, Barbara Cook has only a scrapbook, some black and white photographs….and hope, after all these years.

FOX17 says the last letter from Christian Oliver Dann Jr. came from Arizona — but that was 77 years ago.
