Have you ever had an encounter with a complete stranger and then wanted to track them down to say thank you? Amelia Leith joined Pamela on the show to try and track down the woman she calls her "guardian angel".

4 years ago on the 11th January 2017, Amelia was flying home to Glasgow from Canada with a broken heart. On the flight from Toronto to Dublin, she couldn't stop crying and was feeling incredibly low.

Out of nowhere, she felt arms wrap around her from the person in the seat behind her - an Irish woman asking her if she was ok. Amelia poured her heart out to this woman who looked after her for the rest of the flight.

This woman wrote down her contact details and asked Amelia to keep in touch, but Amelia lost the piece of paper. She hasn't stopped thinking about this woman all these years later and wants to track her down.

She's originally from Dublin and was living in Toronto with her husband, and has 2 daughters - one named Courtney - who would be in their teens and 20's. She was flying home from Toronto that day for a family get together, and was also travelling with either her sister or her sister-in-law.

If this woman sounds familiar, let us know! You can email mairead@todayfm.com.
