PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. — Two women who made an astonishing discovery on a Florida beach when they found a prosthetic leg vowed to find the owner, and they did.
Update 11:50 p.m. EDT May 22: The two cousins were on vacation when they found the artificial limb at Panama City Beach.
After some 900 shares and hundreds of reactions, a woman in Arkansas said the leg belonged to her daughter, who lost it while she was swimming.
Original report: Seashells or seaweed washing up on the beach is an everyday occurrence in Florida.
A prosthetic leg is a different matter.
Farrah Beth Bata found the lonely appendage Morning at Panama City Beach, the Northwest Florida Daily News reported.
"Soooooo, super random question," Bata posted on Facebook's I Love Panama City page. "Anyone missing a leg?"
Bata said she found the leg in the water in front of Whispering Seas.
The leg has a black top and a prosthetic foot attached but no shoe, the Daily News reported.
Of course not. Who wears shoes on the beach?
