The Honest Lawyer- Hurricane Ike Related

I got this from my fishing buddy here in Corpus. Watch the video he made.

After Ike, a diary washes up with money in it. This is a short film of its return. The owner had lost her house and was very surprised to get the diary back.

Man Finds Hurricane Ike Keepsake, Speaks To Item's Owner




CORPUS CHRISTI - A local man made an amazing discovery when he found a woman's planner that was swept in at Padre Island National Seashore from Hurricane Ike.

The planner had floated all the way from Louisiana, and it contained a picture of a young girl, money and personal information that helped the fisherman get in touch with the owner.

"I was walking along the beach, just looking at all the debris; about 42 miles down the beach, and found [the planner]. It was closed up, and I realized then that it was somebody's personal affects, so I opened it up, and was amazed that it had pictures, it had money, it had still legible phone numbers for family members and things like that," Scott Nelson, who found the planner, said.

Nelson, a local attorney, later ran into his friend, Nick Meyer, on the beach and made a video of the discovery.

"I knew it was a good story, so I started filming it right there," Meyer said.

Meyer got employees from his tackle shop, Breakaway Tackle, Inc., to call some of the numbers in the planner, and then they found out the planner belonged to Marsha Trayhan of Johnson Bayou, La.

Nelson and Meyer called Trayhan and she told them her home had been washed away during Hurricane Ike. She also said she often wondered where her belongings ended up going.

"And to actually know that something ended up in Corpus Christi is remarkable, it's wonderful. I thank you so much for taking the time to contact me, to find me," Trayhan said.

She added that she is most grateful to get her now 15-year-old daughter's picture back.

"She said this was when her daughter was six to eight-years-old, and it's the only picture she had from that time, and it was really nice that's she's going to keep this and appreciate it," Nelson said.

The planner also contained some gift cards and sixty dollars, which Trayhan told Nelson and Meyer they could keep.

Although, Meyer said he will be mailing back the planner and the money to Trayhan, who is temporarily living in a trailer.
