Angela from Inala, Brisbane

Angela called me in a very distressed state because her son had just lost her deceased grandfather’s family heirloom pendant while playing at Cj Greensfield sports complex in Inala. He was mucking around in the play ground when he suddenly realised his pendant chain had broken and the pendant was lost.
The play ground was covered in bark and Angela, her son and a few other helpful people spent hours and hours combing the bark to try to find this precious lost item. Angela said they must have spent 6-8 hours with family and friends searching for the pendant. I spent a good 45 minutes going over the area where they thought it might be. I was getting worried, so decided to expand my search to slightly further out in the play ground. I know from experience that many lost items are much further out than where first thought. After about an hour my metal detector gave a decent signal and I saw this small piece of metal in the dust/bark and took it over to her and asked is this it? She screamed and grabbed me, hugging me tight. She thought she had lost her grandfather’s pendant forever.
