KALISPELL — Jason Antes was born in Great Falls in 1969 and is searching for his biological mother.
He told MTN News that he was born to very young parents named Cathryn and Charles.
According to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Antes was removed from his biological parents home due to physical abuse.
After he was removed, he was then placed into foster care and then adopted by a family in Massachusetts.
"It's every adoptive or even foster child's dream to find out who their natural parents are," said Antes.
He told MTN News that he's been searching for his biological mother ever since with the only photo he has from his childhood with someone other than himself. The picture is of him and his two foster sisters.
Antes says that their last known location was in Montana.
"I was hoping somebody would recognize them, and maybe I could meet with them, and then maybe if they would know the agency that I was adopted through," he said. "Which I know is in Massachusetts here, but there's got to be somebody out in Montana that had an agency."
Antes posted that picture on Facebook to get answers and it's been shared across the country. As of news time the post had over forty thousand shares.
Right now, he says that just wants to find his biological mother for closure.
"Even if she doesn't want to be notified or found at least I know and I won't keep searching. I'm fifty now and I'm just trying to find out what happened," he explained. "There's no resentment, there's no anger issues. I just want to know who she is."
If you recognize either of the women in the picture or have an idea of who Antes' biological mother may be, please reach out to Jason Antes on Facebook messenger.
