Former Corrie star John Michie has taken to Twitter to publicly thank the stranger who found and returned a precious pendant of his late daughter Louella.
The 64 year old actor tragically lost his daughter just hours before she turned 25 when she overdosed on 2C-P – an illegal party drug – at Bestival in 2017.
In remembrance of his dear daughter, John carries around a portrait of her on a pendant. The former Casualty actor was understandably devastated when he lost the precious piece of jewellery whilst swimming on Mermaid Beach in Folkestone, Kent.
Thankfully, metal detector enthusiast Kris found the invaluable necklace and did everything he could to track John down.
Upon being reunited with his pendant, John wrote: "Thanks a million @AddictedToBleep for tracking me down after finding my precious Louella pendant on Mermaid Beach which I lost swimming in the sea.
"Bless you for your kindness and bleeps!"
Kris managed to return the pendant to John after reaching out to him on the social media platform.
He wrote: "Hi, John. I’m a Metal Detectorist from Folkestone and have found a pendant with Louella’s picture on it and birthday/death on the back.

"Thought it responsible to reach out to you, and tell you I have it if you need it back. All the best – Kris."
John replied: "Bless you, that’s fantastic news – was so upset to have lost it. I’ll be in touch thank you. J."
When speaking about Louella's untimely death in the past, John referred to it as a "life sentence" for him and his family.
Louella's boyfriend Ceon Broughton was found guilty of manslaughter after failing to help her in her final hours. He had videoed her over a period of six hours hallucinating and begging for help, and failed to take her to the festival hospital tent only 400 metres away.

Ceon was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder and questioned by police.
Speaking at the trial where Ceon was sentenced, John said: "Regardless of the outcome of this harrowing trial, there were never going to be any winners.
"We began our life sentence on what would have been Louella's 25th birthday. Ceon's life sentence is knowing he didn't help Louella to live."
