KELOWNA - Police are trying to locate the owner of a heart-shaped locket that was mailed to the Kelowna RCMP.
The heart-shaped locket was accompanied by a handwritten note from its finder, according to an RCMP release issued today, Nov. 22.
Police describe the locket as a yellow gold brooch shaped like a bow, with a gold heart-shaped locket. The brooch and locket are both engraved with flowers, however, police say there is a name engraved on the locket.
There are two photographs inside the locket, one of a woman seen wearing a sun hat and the other of a man wearing a WWII military cap.
“This unique piece of jewellery appears as though it would be of significant sentimental value to the person who lost it,” says Kelowna RCMP Media Relations Officer Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “We need the public to help us re-unite this brooch and locket with its rightful owner.”
The handwritten note, which accompanied the yellow gold brooch with the locket, read:
"Dear Sir, I found this little brouch (sic) yrs ago on the streets of Rutland but never got around to turning it in. I found it again amongst my things recently. With much regrets for being a procrastinator. Sincerely, A procrastinator."
If you recognize the man or woman from the pictures inside the found locket, or you are the rightful owner of this piece of jewellery, please contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 with proof of ownership including the engraved name on the face of the locket.
