SEVEN brothers and sisters are appealing for help to trace three siblings they have never met.

Their mother, Diane Simpson, of Firth Park, who died last August aged 61, had 10 children.

Seven of them, who live around Sheffield and Rotherham, are in touch with each other.

But they want to be united with their three brothers ‘to bring the family together’.

Tanya Simpson, aged 37, of East Dene, Rotherham, only met the rest of her family last year. She has copy birth certificates for the missing three brothers, all of whom were born in Sheffield.

She and her siblings are now appealing for help to track them down.

She said: “I only recently managed to track down my dad, Wyatt Khan, who now lives in Luton.

“I started trying to find my brothers and sisters two years ago, and I’m still looking.”

Mum-of-two Tanya said the first brother she traced was Danny Docherty, aged 27, of Pitsmoor.

She said: “The first time I called him I put the phone down but he rang back - and I’m glad he did.”

Through Danny, Tanya was introduced to the rest of her family, who all live around Sheffield – Paul Simpson, known as ‘Simmo’, 42, Aaron Cawley, 33, Dean Botham, 31, Diane Docherty, 24, and Amy Botham, 21.

But none of them knew how to contact the remaining brothers.

Tanya said: “We need help to find out where they are.”

Danny said he knew five of his brothers and sisters when growing up but only met Aaron when he was 11, before Tanya got in touch last year.

Danny said: “Part of the family is missing and we would like to get back in touch with them.”

n Anyone who can help should call Tanya on 01709 327 099 or 07884 350 378.
