A woman in New Bern is looking to connect with a sister she never knew she had.

Debra Wright says she added someone as a 'friend' on Facebook. After exchanging several messages and phone calls, she soon came to realize the woman was her half sister.

The sister lives in Pensacola, Florida. Wright was supposed to make the trip down to meet her new sister for the first time over Thanksgiving weekend. However, she got sick.

Wright still plans on meeting with her sister in the near future.
