1 April 2014 Last updated at 08:25 BST

A pensioner from Manchester has sent out 10,000 leaflets in the hope of finding his lost first love.

83-year-old Bert Riley met Reeni when she was 20 and he was 24, and they dated for four years.

She later married and Mr Riley does not know what surname she took. He last saw her in a bakery in Stockport in the 1980s.

Mr Riley's plan is to include Reeni in his will if he can track her down.
