Re­lief for lo­cal who lost her jew­ellery

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE owner of lost jew­ellery now found at Shute Har­bour has been iden­ti­fied and to say she was re­lieved would be an un­der­state­ment.

“I’m be­yond re­lieved and I’m so grate­ful for peo­ple be­ing hon­est,” she said.

On Tues­day, a green felt bag con­tain­ing four dis­tinct and valu­able rings was handed in to the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion.

Thank­fully, it didn’t take long for the owner to come for­ward and take her jew­ellery home.

The Air­lie lo­cal of 13 years, who didn’t want to be named, was en­joy­ing her Satur­day morn­ing at a beach in Shute Har­bour when she lost her rings.

How­ever, she didn’t re­alise she’d lost them un­til Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The woman, who is in her early 50s, said the rings were ir­re­place­able and were of sen­ti­men­tal value to both her and her hus­band of 33 years.

“It’s so re­as­sur­ing for the hu­man race and it’s amaz­ing to know there’s some lovely peo­ple out there,” she said.

“I’m go­ing to give (the woman who handed them in) a gift when I find out who she is be­cause she de­serves one.”
