Family thankful car found

It was found covered in snow but in working order thanks to an eagle-eyed Kelowna woman who spotted an elderly woman's car.

The distraught 85-year-old made an appeal on Castanet for help to find the 2004 Nissan Sentra after it disappeared last week and a search failed to find it.

Helen's son, Glenn, had driven the car to a Tim Hortons for coffee, but suffered an episode and had to be taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment before being transferred to Vancouver General.

It was then the vehicle disappeared.

Thankfully, it was found on Saturday, a few days after it went missing.

"A lady was taking a course at the Capri and spotted a car covered in snow," explained Norma Hurley, Helen's daughter. "She checked Castanet for the licence plate number and called us."

Hurley said her mother is ecstatic that her car has been returned.

"It just goes to show that something like that can work," Hurley said of the appeal. 

She said the car was in good working order and sent out her thanks to the Castanet reader for her help.
