PHOENIX — A New Mexico woman’s plea on social media for help in finding a
hat she lost at a Phoenix airport is garnering thousands of supporters.
Bridget Hughes of Las Cruces, N.M., turned to Facebook after she misplaced her
hat Monday while at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Hughes says on her page that the floppy, knit brown hat belonged to her mother,
who passed away from breast cancer when she was 7.
Since being posted Tuesday, her plea has been shared more than 45,000 times and
“liked” by more than 5,000 Facebook users.
Airport spokeswoman Julie Rodriguez says the airport’s lost-and-found has
received several calls about the hat. Rodriguez says there’s no need for the
public to report it. Airport employees have been working hard to find it.
