Geoffrey Collins is hoping to be reunited with a lost glove that dates back over 100 years.

Nanaimo RCMP are calling on the public to help reunite a local 92-year-old man with a precious heirloom.

Geoffrey Collins is looking for a lost glove, one of a pair that was gifted to him by his father in 1940. Collins says that his father had owned the gloves for 20 years prior, making them at least 100 years old.

Unfortunately, Collins says that on the afternoon of September 26, he lost one of the gloves while out running errands on his scooter.

According to the RCMP, Collins’ route went from Comox Road  to Port Place Mall, via Prideaux Street and Old Victoria Rd and travelling down hill to Victoria Crescent.

Collins says he has retraced his path but has not yet found the missing glove.

“Geoffrey has led an interesting life and the gloves were one of the few remaining items he has which provide him with fond memories of his father, and growing up during such tumultuous times,” said Cst. Gary O’Brien from the Nanaimo RCMP.

Nanaimo RCMP say the missing glove is brown leather with a blue wool lining. Anyone with information can call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
