My name is Hilary. I have a brother Cornelious who is a single father of 3 boys, Cornelious who is 8 and twins Alex and Axel who are 7. Their mother left the family when the boys were 1 and 2 years old. We have not heard anything from her in all this time. I recently found her brother who lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, but he has no information on his sister. Her mother lives in Las Vegas too and she has nothing. Her brother says that neither he or his mother have heard or seen from her in over 2 years. I have done tons of internet searches and every person I contact knows nothing. I found her brother on MySpace. I want my nephews to be able to meet their mother. I am watching them grow up and they ask about her all the time. Her reason for leaving doesnt matter to anyone we just want her to know her boys.

As far as information goes, all we know is that her name is Candice Tubman. Her birthday is in March of 1979 and her home town is Akron, Ohio. She was never married to Cornelious but was the mother of his children. Her mother's name is Vivian Rivers and she lived in Las Vegas. Candice has two brothers named Lawrence and Michael. At one time she was married to a man named Clarence and had a daughter with him named Nautica, who would be 13 years old today.

I never thought that would be enough information to solve the case, but Julie proved me wrong. She solved the case in only 3 weeks! What I loved most about the whole experience is that she kept in touch with me every step of the way, letting me know as she made progress and even as she hit dead ends. The breakthrough in the case finally came when Julie ran across the obituary for Candice's step-father, Eugene, who passed away this past September. This obituary led Julie to Candice's half-sister Jasmine. Julie emailed Jasmine, and said the following:

"Hi, Jasmine. First of all, I'd like to say I'm so sorry about the death of your father. While looking for Candice, I came across your dad's obituary which lead me to you. I am a private investigator who was hired by Candice's son's paternal aunt to locate her for them. Her kids would really love to have their Mom back in their lives. Hilary wanted me to emphasize that this has nothing to do with child support or money, just the need for her nephews to know their mom. They are willing to pay for a plane ticket for Candice to go visit her sons, or for them to visit her. I have attached photos of the boys, and as you can see they are wonderful! Do you have any contact with her or her Mom, Vivian? If you could either write back, call me or forward this message to Candice, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks so much and, again, I'm so sorry for your loss!"

After receiving this message, Jasmine called Candice and put us in touch with one another. We never talked about what happened that caused her to leave, we simply focused on the future and what is best for the boys. Candice is going to be coming out at Thanksgiving to surprise the boys, and I am grateful for the part I have played in putting them back together again. Thanks SQA and especially Julie for making this whole thing possible! May you continue to bless the lives of others as you have blessed ours!
