Real Name: Margaret Wiesner
Case: Lost Sister
Location: Newark, New Jersey
CaseEditDetails: Farezat Thormat Abdokov from Russia is searching for her long lost half-sister, Margaret Wiesner. In 1949, Farezat and Margaret's mother Roszi moved to Newark, New Jersey, and met Boris Thormat. The two had Farezat and another child, Fatima.
In 1954, while suffering from post-partum depression, Roszi commited suicide by walking into Barbours’ Pond in West Paterson, New Jersey, with Fatima. Farezat and Margaret were separated after their mother's death when Margaret's father Sami put her in a foster home. The two sisters still kept in touch until 1959 when Farezat and her father Boris moved back to Russia. In 1991, an American named Ben Cross who was in Russia helping after the end of the Cold War met with Farezat and he began helping her search for her sister. One piece of information they were able to uncover was that in 1960, Margaret's father took her out of the foster home and moved to New York. Sadly, Margaret has never been found.
