Update: The family who owned the urn and charm has been found. The necklace had been stolen over a year ago. It contains a lock of a child's hair, according to a Facebook update. Rosi Mendoza, who had bought the necklace that included the urn, said she and the family "are over the moon" with happiness.
Original story: A Farmersville woman bought a silver necklace from Alma's Flea Market in Hanford with no idea it contained someone's ashes.
Once she realized what the necklace represented, Rosi Mendoza took to Facebook to try to find the family who may have lost it.
The silver urn pendant containing the ashes is paired with a small plate featuring a handprint.
Never miss a local story.
The name Madelyn is engraved on the urn, while the plate holds a March birthstone, Mendoza said in an interview with KMPH.
Mendoza believes the necklace contains a child's or baby's ashes.
Her Facebook post was shared over 500 times. Commenters encouraged Mendoza to check with local police departments, and to go back to the flea market to try to find the seller, both of which she said she planned to do.
