PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A southeast Portland family says a 50-pound nose stolen off their front porch earlier this year has been found.

The Albert family kids put up fliers in Portland’s Eastmoreland neighborhood asking people to keep an eye out for their nose after someone swiped it in October.

Sayer, Dylan and Cannon said the nose was their family’s porch decoration; they pooled their piggy bank money together to offer a $6.27 reward to offer anyone who could help them find it.

The kids’ mom said she received an email from someone on Wednesday who said the nose ended up at her home. That person saw the story on the news and contacted them to return it. Later, the mom went out to Gresham to pick it up and surprise the kids.

Sayer, Dylan and Cannon said in October that they found the nose at their dad’s company.

“He’s in advertising, and in the junk pile of his office, it was just there, and we thought it’d be funny to bring it home,” Sayer said.
