Kinga Bednarz of Sweden was vacationing with her family in Paralimni, Cyprus, last week when the theft occurred. The group had planned on scattering the ashes of the deceased Swedish teenager on a stretch of beach in Sweden, following the 19-year-old’s death in an accident five months ago.
However, while parked at Governor’s Beach, where the family had planned to scatter the ashes, their rental car was broken into and three suitcases, one of which contained the urn, were stolen from the car.
Bednarz called the Cyprus police who located the urn near a highway exit. Bednarz and her husband plan to fly back to the island on Tuesday
