An investigation revealed that the woman had left the country.

A woman who lost an amount of cash in the UAE has got it back months after she left the country. An Ajman Police officer searched for the woman for three months before tracking her down in a remote area in an Asian country. The police managed to track her down and send the amount to her despite the fact that she had not reported the loss.

Lieutenant-Colonel Ghaith Khalifa Al Kaabi, Director of Ajman's Madinah Comprehensive Police Station, said a resident handed over a wallet containing the amount to the police after finding it in a public place.

The police checked the wallet and found an identity card. An investigation revealed that the woman had left the country.

Omar Musabah Al Kaabi from the Madinah Comprehensive Police Station was tasked with tracing the owner of the wallet. He found an international number in the wallet and dialled it. An Asian man answered the phone and told the officer that the woman lived in a remote village in an Asian country that had shaky Internet access.

After several attempts to reach her over the course of three months, the officer finally managed to communicate with her over a WhatsApp number belonging to a relative of hers in another area.

After confirming her identity, the police sent the amount over to her and confirmed that she had received it.

The woman expressed joy over receiving the wallet back despite not reporting the wallet lost.
