An Oliver woman has a Cinderella case on her hands, except instead of finding who belongs to the missing glass slipper she is trying to reunite someone with their dress.

Sandy Black went outside Monday to find a strange bundle in her yard, which turned out to be a pink and silver dress.

“It was inside out in a pile in the corner of our yard,” said Black. “I thought maybe it was something the gardener had left there. Then two days later, after the big thunderstorm, I arrived home to find it right-side out in front of my parking spot.”

Despite a Facebook post, no one has stepped forward to claim the dress.

The dress has multiple sheer and ruffled layers on the bottom, and the bodice is covered in crystals. Two sheer straps are attached to the shoulders of the dress. The bottom layers are in shades of white and pink, and the top is a pale pink with blue crystals.

“It looks like an expensive dress,” said Black.

The description of the dress has also been left with the local RCMP.
