Help find missing rug

The rug was one of the last items her husband gave her before he passed away eight years ago.

All Jeannine Morris wants is her rug back.

Sometime between Monday, Oct. 1 and Tuesday, Oct. 2, Morris says her rug disappeared from the fence around her property in Honeymoon Bay. The rug was one of the last items her husband gave her before he passed away eight years ago.

Morris says that she was in the process of washing and hanging linens and blankets in preparation for the winter months, and so did not notice right away that the eight foot by 12 foot, eggplant with green vines rug was missing.

“I brought in a line full of blankets and stuff and then I looked over at the fence and it was gone,” said Morris.

She has not reported the incident to the police because she does not want to accuse anyone.

“I would rather give someone a break,” she said.

But Morris has arthritis, is on a fixed income, and says that her wood floors get very cold in the winter.

“Last year my pets and I just about froze.”

Morris says she could get another rug, and has even had neighbours and friends offer to help, but she says that she just wouldn’t love a new rug as much as the old one.

“It has sentimental value because of my husband. When we moved to Lake Cowichan, we had bought almost all new furniture, but within almost one year of the date we moved in he passed away,” said Morris.

Morris lives on South Shore Road close to the old Honey Pot Pub and she’s hoping that someone in the area saw something or knows where the carpet may be. If you have any information, Morris can be reached at 250-932-6992.

Morris is offering a reward if the rug is returned in good condition.
