Missing bag of presents found

Shaun Brown is overwhelmed by the amount of total strangers that helped her locate her missing bag filled with Christmas presents and irreplaceable items.

“I got my Christmas miracle,” Brown said via email on Tuesday. “They have the bag but because of severe weather are unable to get it here for Christmas day, but they found it.”

On Dec. 21, Brown, who resides in Drumheller, Alta., posted a picture of a black duffel bag on her Facebook page. The bag was shipped via Greyhound bus courier services on Dec. 11 bound for Brandon. As of Tuesday, the picture had over 5,000 Facebook shares and a variety of comments from friends and strangers showing their support.

“If anyone has seen this bag, or picked it up by mistake, it would mean the world to me if this parcel could make it to my family by Christmas,” read the statement Brown posted with the photo. “Please help me make my own Christmas miracle happen and share this photo and info so we can get the parcels where they belong.”

The bag was filled with Christmas presents, Brown’s niece’s birthday gift as well as wedding favours and photos from her daughter’s wedding.

“Some of the things in the bag are just not replaceable, like the favours, and there was some really cool memorabilia from the tour of Alberta for my nephew that won't ever be replaceable,” Brown said via email. “I'm not the type of person who just buys a gift because you need one, I take the time to let a gift find me.

“I've been shopping since August for just the right thing for everyone.”

Although the bag was supposed to be in Brandon for Christmas, it was located in Toronto with help from the photo Brown posted on Facebook.

“Thanks to everyone that helped by sharing the photo.”

Brown’s family in Brandon should receive the bag in the new year.
