IN this day and age, losing a phone can feel like losing a limb.

Yesterday Emma Strybis of Taree experienced this feeling first hand.

“I lost my iPhone 6near the roundabout on Manning Street,” said Emma.

“I thought it was gone for good after searching and asking in all the shops.

“We called my phone a few times then on our last try a man picked up.”

The man that answered the phone call had spotted the phone in the gardenjust outside the Manning River Times building.

He picked it up to get it out of the rain.

“He and his wife were in a motor home all the way from Western Australia,” continued Emma.

“When we knocked on their door we were met with a big hug from his wife and a God bless you from her too!

“I thought my luck had run out for sure.”

The couple behind the good deed was Hilton and Bev Dunn, from Western Australia.

Emmathanked them on popular Facebook page ‘You’re from TAREEif …….’,”as they made her year”.

Upon telling her mother about the story, her mother said she knew the couple in a special way.

“She told me that a couple named Bev and Hilton used to be locals but moved to WA”

As it turned out “Bev was the singer in the band that played at my mum’s wedding!”
