Not sure harvest. He turned 18 in 1982 and records available from what I can see stop at 1980.

No idea where he has lived since he left 30 years ago. I have been given a rough idea of where he may have been living 14 years ago.
Maybe I will have to make a day trip to the library but what would the chances of the name Andrew Harris standing out amongst 100 other Andrew harris's or do they have DOB attached!?

I have two siblings names one with DOB.
Mum said she didn't put him down as she was 17 and her older sister who was 20 told her not to put it on the certificate so he had no rights to me if he left. My aunt fell pregnant a few years earlier and the father wanted nothing to do with the baby so she thought she was giving good advice at the time.
I know he is a twin , his DOB , his parents first and last name and that's it really

I haven't had to do this, but one thing that popped into my mind was finding out names of friends he had (or family) from your Mum and using stepping stones from there, ie. say Joe Bloggs stopped talking to him 10 yrs ago, getting another friends name off him and so forth until you find someone that is still in contact.
Wishing you so much luck with your search!

Thanks red lips. I have found his old best friend also my godfather but as I said came to a dead end.
I asked him straight out if he just doesn't want to be found because if not then I can stop and just to pass on family history but he said no that's not that case.
I have found two other friends also and am still in contact with one who has been trying to help but coming up short also.
I wish his name was Ricardo Harris would make it easier haha
