After more than a week of worrying, a Chorley resident can finally breathe a sigh of relief.
Last week, the Guardian reported that mother-of-two Marie Morgan had lost her sentimental Pandora bracelet.
But after a reader saw the story, Marie was re-united with her bracelet.
And the 39-year-old says she has been left “flabbergasted” that it has turned up.
She said: “I’m absolute over the moon – I didn’t expect this at all.
“My friend suggested I came to the paper so I thought I’d try it just as a last chance.”
Marie lost her bracelet while having celebratory drinks with her friends in Chorley town centre.
The group visited The Prince of Wales and Pearsons after they completed a 10k run in Lytham earlier that day.
But towards the end of the night, Marie realised her beloved bracelet was no longer on her wrist.
After a week of searching the town, being in constant contact with the police and even following eBay, Marie received the phone call she never thought she would get.
She said : “When the paper came out last Tuesday, I got a phone call that same morning.
“Someone had read the story and knew who had picked it up.
“So we arranged to meet and I was overjoyed when I collected it.
“I gave them the reward – it was a major sense of relief that it has turned up. It proves honest people are out there, which is heart-warming.”
