The young man offered a heartfelt — and also very nicely penned — plea for help finding his dad. The boy writes: "I am looking for a man named Jason, who lived in Syracuse, New York, in 1996. He went to the first K-rockathon ... [and] met a woman named Diana Collins, I am the product of that night. I am not asking for anything. Just would like to meet my biological father."

As of Thursday evening, the post had been shared over 3,500 times and accrued 1,490 comments.
