A Davenport boy makes his network TV debut Friday morning on “The View.”
Eddie Hanzelin, 7, used his iPad to locate a family friend’s long-lost sister. Eddie’s parents, Amy and Glenn Hanzelin, rent an apartment to Clifford Boyson, 66, also of Davenport, who had been searching for years for the older sister he had never met. Using Facebook, Eddie found Betty Boyson Billadeau and recognized a family resemblance. Within about a week, brother and sister were reunited in Davenport. The boy’s efforts made national news, and the reunion was covered live by a crew from “Good Morning America.”
The second-grader from Trinity Lutheran School, Davenport, made his latest big-media appearance this week in a taping of “The View,” an all-woman talk show on ABC.
The program is scheduled to air at 10 a.m. Friday on ABC.
