A Kamloops family will have a better Mothers' Day thanks to a special delivery from the Kamloops RCMP.
In the early morning hours Saturday May 10th, police responded to a complaint from a witness who had interrupted a thief breaking into their vehicle in the North Shore area of Kamloops.
While police were unable to locate the culprit, an officer located a backpack nearby while searching the area.
The backpack contained an Elementary School book, clothing and a Mothers' Day card and present.
While the school book contained the students' name, police were faced with the challenge of finding its owner in time for Mothers' Day.
A number of different enquiries were made and the police were finally able to locate the owner of the backpack.
The backpack was delivered to the child's father who expressed his gratitude, saying his daughter would have been heartbroken had she lost the card and present for her mother.
