From Iceland — Searching For Her Icelandic Half-Brother

Searching For Her Icelandic Half-Brother

Published September 3, 2013

A French woman is trying to find her Icelandic half-brother, and has asked the general public for help.
Vísir reports that Jessica Decap, a 35-year-old woman from France, learned from her father nearly two decades ago that she had a half-brother in Iceland. There are few clues as to his identity, but they are as follows:
In 1968, Jessica’s father, Jean-Claude, was an electrician working in Iceland. There, he met a woman whose name was possibly Gugga, and worked in the post office in Reykjavík. After returning home later in the year, Jean-Claude received a telegram from the woman, informing him of their son. Jean-Claude never sought him out.
Apart from these clues, Jessica added that her half-brother might also be very tall, as the telegraph described the child at the time as such.
Anyone with any information that might be helpful in Jessica’s search for her half-brother are invited to contact her directly, at
