PETERSBURG, Va. – Two Petersburg police officers have discovered they aren't just co-workers — they're father and son.
Sergeant Chris Walker started hearing a name around the office that sounded familar — Detective Clay Hamilton. After some casual questions for the 53-year-old Hamilton, Walker called his mother to see if he could get some more information about his hunch.
Turns out the 37-year-old Walker's mother had a brief relationship with Hamilton and became pregnant. But she moved away from the Richmond area and Hamilton never got to meet the baby — until now.
A DNA test confirmed that Walker and Hamilton are father and son. The two men are making up for lost time by spending time together. Walker credits faith — and fate — for the reunion.
