Passport Found

Found in Torrox-Costa in the small car park at the end of Penoncillo Beach going towards Nerja, a British passport in the name of Puryer. We asked all the people sunbathing on that end of the beach and in the last restaurant on the beach but we’re unable to locate this lady. The staff were very helpful and called the Torrox Guardia who we believe now have possession of it.

If only there had been a contact number written at the back on the emergency contact page, it would have saved a lot of worry for this lady.

Fingers crossed she reads this, or someone who knows her passes this message on.  Linda 648119401
