Now nearly 50 years later he has shared his story, and said his aim is to one day meet up with his birth parents.

In the post he wrote: “My birth mother was 18 and worked for the Post Office as a telephonist. My birth father was a professional guitarist in a group. That’s all I know about him.

“They had a relationship for six months. I was put up for adoption soon after. Her father, who was a tailor, was very strict, therefore I had to go.

“I would like to find my birth mother and father and I’m hoping Facebook can help. Please share this for me and hopefully one day meet up.”

Mr Hales believes his original name was Jason Andrew Hill, and his appeal has been shared all over the country and beyond, even reaching as far as Australia.
