Search underway for heir of man with common name, who was owed over $350,000

There’s a search underway for the family of a man named John Evans who died before receiving a very large payday.

A UK financial firm uncovered Evans was owed over $350,000 – but they can’t find any trace of him.

The money is currently being held in the chancery division of the supreme court, according to Wales Online.

Green & Parish Limited’s expertise lies in finding unclaimed assets and uncovering who they are owed to.

Their theory is that Evans has died and his family are owed his fortune.

A spokesperson for the company said he was a customer of Barclays Bank Exchange Buildings, Cardiff Docks – back in the 1970s.

He’s been impossible to trace because when that branch closed in 1980, all records were destroyed.
