Washed-up handbag back with owner 30 years after theft

# A woman has been reunited with a handbag that was stolen 30 years ago, after it was found washed up in Aberdeen in Scotland. The bag had been taken from 81-year-old Audrey Hay at her former workplace in the city. It is thought the thief may have taken money from the bag before throwing it into the River Don. Eleven-year-old Maisie Coutts was walking at the mouth of the Don with her parents when she found the old bag on Tuesday. They found the owner’s name on a credit card inside the back and tracked her down through social media.
