Missing daughter found

By Robyn Gray

There was good news for Bangalow mother, Robin Dayman late last week when she made contact with her daughter Rebecca, who had been on holiday from England in Thailand during the tsunami disaster.

Mrs Dayman had no idea where her daughter, son-in-law and grand daughter were travelling, except that they could have been in the path of the widespread destruction.

She provided details of her family's identities, but heard nothing from British authorities.

"For three days I was catatonic," she said.

"I would go to my prayer place at the creek and I prayed, not just for my daughter, but for everyone.

"Then I got a post card from Bangkok, and I cried.

It blew me away."

Mrs Dayman has since talked to her daughter by phone at her home in England.

"My grand daughter was sleeping in her own bed for her fourth birthday," she said.

Mrs Dayman said the support she had received from friends, old and new, had been absolutely fabulous.
