A police department in the United Kingdom recently posted the following message on their website.

And they also posted the same appeal on their Facebook page:

Was this beach towel made of gold? Was it soaked in the waters of the fountain of youth? We may never know, because it remains missing!

Commenters had an array of feelings about this perhaps less-than-urgent bulletin:

Then something resembling an explanation came into view. Apparently it was a very expensive beach towel.

The police later responded to the long trail of jokes with this statement:
