The jacket is tan coloured, size XL without any labels inside. Sgt. Peter DeVries, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP, said that the jacket was handed in a couple of weeks ago.

In a release posted to the North Van RCMP’s website, DeVries writes that the jacket has a story and would like to be reacquainted with its rightful owner.
“Single Non-White Jacket Seeks Lost Partner

Me: broad shouldered and nicely tanned Virgo, size XL. I love long walks on the beach and candle-lit dinners. I’m not sporty, but I’m just as comfortable at a pub as I am at the symphony. I’m warm, soft, formal, and low-maintenance. I don’t like labels, so nobody can tell where I’m from. I’m well put together, and have never fallen apart in public. Smooth-chested. No back hair!

You: broad shouldered, tall Scorpio who wears size XL. By my guess you’re over 40 (but you don’t look a day over 29!) You know how to treat a jacket. You never labelled me and I loved you for that. You’re clean, but not a neat-freak. You thought we were through, so you let me go. You said, It’s not you, it’s me. You dropped me off on that rainy night, behind the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Fell Street in North Vancouver. I found someone new, someone who would love me again. You’re a good catch so you probably did too. But I think you still miss me. Because you left something valuable behind, in one of my pockets. Not a scarf or pair of socks, but something much more valuable. Maybe you just wanted one last chance to hold me?

Missing you…

Call me… (604) 985-1311”

The jacket’s rightful owner is asked to contact the North Van RCMP at the above number.
