Laurel Hill School officials seek family photo albums’ owner

Published: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 02:00 PM.

Brown believes Leslie’s mother, Marlene Oetting, created the book.

The scrapbook also features Atkinson's report cards, pamphlets from school plays he performed in, and the marriage announcement to this wife, Jean, in 1979.

The photo albums depict a portion of Atkinson's life, from birth to his many accomplishments in the United States Air Force.   

Atkinson, who would be 56 this year, has mementos posted for one child, listed as Nicholas Edward Atkinson, in the scrapbook. He was born at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. No birth year was given.

The Internet has aided Brown’s quest. She found a Leslie E. Atkinson, with a Crestview address and phone number, with help from a school employee with access to an ancestry website.

She couldn’t make contact at the phone number listed. However, Facebook held another lead.

 Brown said she found Atkinson — listed as living in Oklahoma City — on the site, along with a couple of Atkinson family members. She sent several messages last week to each, but hasn’t received a response.
