All is well! Police Recover Lindsay Lohan's Handbag
Lindsay Lohan may be in luck. British police said Friday they had recovered a handbag that went missing from the star's luggage cart at Heathrow Airport.
"A member of the public contacted us to say they had found it and brought it in," a Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said, on customary condition of anonymity. "We have not yet established what, if anything, is missing."
Lohan's representative, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, told the syndicated television show "The Insider" on Thursday that the orange Hermes bag contained jewelry and the actress' asthma medicine.
"She is begging for the return of the items," Sloane told the program. "She doesn't care how she gets them back; she just wants her stuff back."
London's Evening Standard newspaper on Friday ran a picture of a tearful Lohan, 20, which it said was taken just after she realized the bag was missing.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed Thursday that a 20-year-old woman had reported the theft of a bag from the airport, but in keeping with force policy did not name her.
"We understand the bag contained a quantity of jewelry," police said in a statement.
