A search is underway to find a Dublin Airport mother-of-two who came to the rescue of a Scottish lady on a flight during the “lowest point of her life”.
Radio station TodayFM launched the campaign to track down the woman after chatting to Glasgow native Amelia Leith who had gotten in touch to find her mystery hero once and for all.
Amelia described the woman as her “guardian angel” who comforted her on a flight from Toronto to Dublin on January 11, 2017.
The unknown Dubliner was living in Toronto with her husband at the time and has two daughters, one of whom is called Courtney, who would be in their late teens or early 20s by now.
She was flying back to Ireland from Toronto for a family gathering and was travelling with another relation who Amelia believes was her sister or sister-in-law.
Speaking to Pamela Joyce on the Mairead Ronan show, Amelia explained that she was flying home to Glasgow from Canada, with a stop at Dublin Airport, and was heartbroken at the time.
She explained how she couldn’t stop crying on the flight and was all of a sudden taken care of by the Irish woman who wrapped her arms around her from the seat behind.
The mystery figure asked Amelia if she was okay and the Glaswegian opened up to the Irish lass, pouring her heart out to her as she was looked after for the rest of the flight.
While the Dub did write down contact details and asked Amelia to stay in touch, the Glaswegian lost the piece of paper.
But she said she hasn’t stopped thinking about her in the last four years and wants to track her down once and for all and thank her for being there in her darkest hour.
TodayFM said: “On this day in 2017 Amelia from Scotland travelled from Toronto to Dublin during ‘the lowest point’ in her life.
