The hunt for the pearl tiara

PHYLLIS Johnson was the kind of woman that would do anything for anyone.

So in April 2008 she beamed with pride when she told her family and friends that she was lending a bride her much-loved tiara for her big day.

It may not be a family heirloom, but since his wife's death last December, Warwick's Colin Johnson has been desperately hunting for the tiara to give it pride of place among Mrs Johnson's prized possessions and photos.

He's raked high and low through the house and has read and re-read his diary for clues, but Mr Johnson has been unable to figure out the whereabouts of the pearl tiara.

“It wasn't that it was expensive or a family heirloom, but it belonged to her and I can't stop thinking about where it could be,” the 83-year-old told the Daily News.

“At her 90th birthday in April 2008 she told everyone about how she was loaning it to someone for their wedding and we haven't seen it since.

“Perhaps the person has forgotten they even have it but if anyone knows where it is, I'd really like to know.”

If you have Mrs Johnson's tiara or know where it is, please call the Daily News on 46601317 or email jenna.cairney@warwickdailynews.com.au.
