For 44 years, Melissa Durr wondered how she ended up with blue eyes.
“I always said I looked so much like my mother with the exception of my blue eyes,” she said.
This year, on Labor Day weekend, Durr met her father, Ovan Ray Caudill, for the first time. And, sure enough, his eyes were blue, too.
Beginning the search
Durr has always known about her father, she said, but she didn’t try to find him.
