Explanation:
Hello !

The name of the person is a very usual name in Germany, any search in the internet will give you too many hits.

Here a more direct way to search:

All Germans are registered in the registration office of the city they live called "Einwohnermeldeamt" in German.

For Stuttgart I found the following information/address:

Einwohnerregister
Amt für öffentliche Ordnung
Eberhardsstr. 39 (m)
D-70173 Stuttgart

Telephone + 49 711 216-6560
They can be reached by mail:
poststelle.32@stuttgart.de
(in the hope that they will help you)

If your mother would tell you a bit more about him, like what part of the city, any part of the address, the year he was born, his birthday if she knows it, the eye-color is not registered.....where he went to school or any other details, make sure the last name is written exactly that way, it would be of great help.
Event though Markus might live somewhere else now they might have information about him, where he moved to etc.

The chance that he or somebody knowing him reading reading your lines here is very small.


I wish you all the best !
