The report said that Darlene Curley and her daughter, of Tennessee, were on the beach in Daytona when they spotted a purse, bank bag, shoes and a towel washed in by the tide. They retrieved the items and inside the bag  found $13,087.88 in cash.

Fearing for the safety of the person who might have lost it, the Curleys took the items to lifeguards who locked the items away, the News Journal item said.

At some point, Mary Self, 49, of Harwood apparently caught up with lifeguards at the Ormond Beach station and was reunited with her belongings. The report said that she not only had the bag and cash, but credit cards and various pieces of jewelry inside.
