Gear gone astray ...

Found by somebody who contacted me and said they's return them to me. They have not been returned and the person hasn't responded to my call or text. The phone number they contacted me on is: 07*** ******. Clearly not getting my paddle back but just wanted to name and shame as such!

It's an act of kindness to return something that you've found, especially awkward items like paddles, they obviously tried by contacting you, you don't know what has happened since. If it was me I certainly wouldn't return it now...

Publicly posting someone's mobile number isn't cool. Even if you think they've done you wrong.Mike Dalby wrote:The phone number they contacted me on is: ...
Maybe there are reasons why they haven't been able to help you get your lost property back yet. Stuff happens.
I appreciate the sentiments here BUT.....the person contacted me 3 months ago then went quiet, I offered to pay him postage costs etc and make sure there was a few beers in it for him. Then I heard nothing for 2 weeks and when I contacted him again he said he was going to pass the paddle to a friend who lives near me. That was 2 and a half months ago now and heard nothing. Have tried ringing and texting on 4 separate occasions since then but no response. If I had found someone's paddles I'd have returned them as promised as being a paddler I understand how frustrating it can be to lose a set of paddles.
