A Scottish man has launched an appeal to trace a glamour model he met on an adult phone-in show - so he can leave her £20,000 in his will.

Besotted Thomas Weir, originally from Greenock, Inverclyde, wants to track down 'Laura Jones' after speaking to her for a year on Babestation.

The 50-year-old, who now lives in Milton Keynes, wants to leave the woman thousands of pounds - because she's "lovely".

He said: "I don't want to get in touch with her, that's not me. I think she'll spend the money wisely and she's such a lovely person, she is a loon - very funny.

"My nephews and nieces all live abroad and are doing very well. I have no children and there is no one else I would like to leave the money to."

Fearing he may not have long left due to debilitating diabetes and an MRSA infection, Thomas wants to get the money to 'Laura' - believed to now be 41 - ASAP.

According to Thomas, who has had his lower right leg amputated, 'Laura' used to wear her hair in pigtails and had links to Pumpkin Film Production.

The company was formerly based on Ebenezer Street, to the east of Bristol.

He says the model could have left the city by now and her former profession - but he's hoping her family could still live in the area. Unfortunately, although Thomas' intentions for his assets are clear, he will not be able to leave his money to 'Laura' unless she can be properly identified.

Graham Southorn, a legacy planner for Maplebrook Wills, said: "For someone to receive inheritance as much information as is required to identify the beneficiary.

"The executors of a will have to be able to find the intended beneficiary - they can be held personally liable if a claim is made. So they need enough information to do that."
