ORLANDO — You would probably find a wide assortment of items at the Lost & Found at Walt Disney World. Keys, phones, wallets, umbrellas and… boyfriends?
That’s what one woman was probably hoping to retrieve during a recent visit to the park. According to People, Brittany Blake and her boyfriend Regory Turco became separated at Epcot while on a couple’s vacation. To make matters worse, Turco’s cell phone ran out of battery, making it impossible for the pair to contact one another.
So, rather than wait all day at Lost & Found for someone to deliver her boyfriend (we kid, we kid), Blake took matters into her own hands and posted a cry for help in the Disney Annual Passholders Facebook group.
“Weird post but lost my boyfriend in Epcot today and haven’t been able to find him for hours because his phone is dead. If anyone sees him can they tell him to meet us at the Mexican pavilion?”
Blake also ended the note with: “P.S. I’m the one who’s nervous here because I hate being alone lmao. He’s probably off drinking.”
She included a photo of Turco taken earlier that day, wearing a bright red Hawaiian shirt, in hopes that someone – anyone – would recognize him.
Well, as you can imagine, Facebook responded in full, with over 1,300 comments in just two hours. One commenter was quick to point out to Turco’s shirt resembled that of Stitch from Lilo & Stitch, and went so far as to post a photo of Stitch to prove it.
“I did not see him but Stitch has a similar shirt on,” the commenter wrote.
Other people left very ‘helpful’ suggestions as to where Turco could possibly be, including “napping on spaceship earth”, “drunk in Mexico” and “in line for Frozen”.
And then, there were commenters who urged Blake to take advantage of her newfound ‘freedom’ and start living it up at the park.
“At some point you need to give up and take the gift that’s in front of you. You’re now a single rider and that’s almost like having a Fast Pass. His loss,” one commenter wrote.
Nearly three hours after she first posted her message, Blake reported on Facebook that she eventually found her boyfriend. So where was he?
Sure enough. Turco was spotted in line for Frozen!
Blake, who also noted that her boyfriend was “drinking all day” while looking for her, made sure to thank everyone for their “nice comments”. We hope she wasn’t all that mad at Turco and was able to just ‘let it go’.
