My broken heart is healed. Albert’s WWI medallion, stolen last Wednesday, has been found and will soon be back with the Marlow family. We wish to express our gratitude to everyone involved. I am not aware of the details, but I can say that I am in awe of the amazing work of the police officers from the various units at Coolum, Kawana and Noosa. I am eternally grateful to you all.  My heartfelt thanks for your patience, care, determination and skill. I particularly wish to acknowledge the investigative work of Detective Senior Constable Katie Tomlins of the Noosa Heads Child Protection and Investigation Unit – the heroine of this story! The difficult work which our police officers do every day to keep us safe and to protect what belongs to us is not often visible, but it is outstanding. Like our Anzac forebears, they deserve our deepest respect and they most certainly have mine.

Also, a huge thank you to Sue Sagar, Channel 7, the Noosa News, Noosa Today, the Sunshine Coast Daily, Sunny Coast Community Board, Peregian Springs Locals, Peregian Springs Locals-Buy, Swap, Sell and Peregian Springs Residents Association for being so readily prepared to raise awareness. To Anzac Live for the heartfelt post yesterday, thank you (you made my cry). To every person who responded on Facebook to alert others and send messages of support, my apologies if I missed replying to you, but my deepest gratitude. I suspect the Marlow brothers will be smiling down upon you all. They can now rest easy X
