To the editor: On June 2, I was involved in an automobile accident on U.S. 17 in Shallotte. I was transported to Brunswick Community Hospital by Brunswick County EMS, and the Shallotte Police Department was at the scene.
After about five hours in the emergency room, I was released and called a friend to pick me up and take me home. Upon arriving home, it occurred to me I didn’t have my wallet in its usual place.
My friend and I called the Shallotte Police Department and the hospital, but unfortunately, no one could tell me the whereabouts of my wallet.
My friend went to the towing yard and checked the vehicle with a very nice gentleman, but alas, no wallet.
Going the additional step, my friend visited the EMS garage and the supervisor on duty went the extra mile to see if she could help determine where the wallet may be. Unfortunately, still no wallet.
The wallet itself is unimportant. My license, insurance information, credit cards, personal photos of my children, and various IDs contained my whole life. It is beyond my comprehension how my wallet could be missing when so many good and decent people were taking care of me.
My wallet means very much to me. If anyone should come across a black trifold wallet with cancelled credit cards, nice pictures of my kids and other personal items, I sincerely hope you would be kind and thoughtful enough to return it to The Brunswick Beacon for me.
