It was a nightmare that no parent should have to endure. In 1987 the daughter of Joy White and Carol Tyson was kidnapped. Taken right out of Harlem Hospital when she was less than one month old.

Newborn Carlina White had a fever. When it hit 104 degrees, her parents immediately took her to the hospital. As Carlina’s mother waited for news, she was met by a nurse. The woman was calm and supportive. She told Joy that everything was fine, and suggested she go home to rest.

Where Will Life Take You In 2011?

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Family. Strength. Home.

As we start a New Year, we think about our lives. We focus on the things that are most important to us.

We all long to be with our loved ones. To be in a place where we are warm, safe and cared for. We find strength in the family and friends who share our lives. And we miss the people we’ve lost touch with.

In 2011, you can go home again. You can find the family and friends who are missing from your life. You can feel the strength that comes from a warm embrace, a long chat with an old friend or even a simple word of encouragement over the phone. This year, reconnect with the people who are missing from your life, but not from your heart. A direct path to them is waiting for you. Find it at

Happy New Year, and thank you for reading the PeopleFinders people search blog.


Discovering Roots Day

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Roots Day happens every December 23. It’s a day when everyone is encouraged to learn more about their ancestors.

Family Stories Month

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

November is the owner of an often-overlooked celebration known as Family Stories Month. It’s a simple thing, really. Just a time to reflect on the silly, funny, serious and sometimes terrifying stories that help define our family units.

Family Stories
These are the stories of us. They can make us laugh, cry and experience every emotion in between. Sometimes all at once. That’s because these stories helped make us what we are today.

Every family has thousands of stories. Some are epic tales that changed lives. Others are small anecdotes that bring us happy memories of someone, or some moment in time. But they are all important. And they are all worth sharing.
