A Russian traveler has extended her sincere thanks to police officers in central Vietnam for helping her recover the backpack that she had accidentally dropped while traveling on a motorbike, local police reported this weekend.

Police in Pho Cuong Commune, Duc Pho District, central Quang Ngai Province said on Saturday that Victoria Alexandrovna, 27, a woman of Russian nationality, had thanked local police officers for actively deploying measures to look for her lost backpack.

She also expressed her gratitude to H. L. Khuong, a 30-year-old man of Binh Dinh Province in south-central Vietnam, who had picked up the backpack and reported his finding to Pho Cuong police, leading to the return of the lost item to its owner.

On Thursday afternoon, Alexandrovna was riding a motorbike carrying her backpack from Quy Nhon City in Binh Dinh to the ancient town of Hoi An in central Quang Nam Province when she found that she had inadvertently dropped the backpack somewhere, local police reported.

The Russian woman, deeply worried, immediately halted her journey in Pho Cuong Commune, as her backpack contained her passport, cellphone, and other important belongings.

Following advice and instructions from local residents, Alexandrovna reported her case to the commune police for help.

Police officers then urged the woman to keep calm while waiting for them to take measures to recover the lost item.   

The incident was broadcast on the commune's radio station, and forces were deployed to search along Highway 1 through the locale.

Detailed information about the backpack was posted on the Facebook page ‘Co do Pho Cuong’ (Pho Cuong Red Flag), and staff were assigned to frequently call the woman’s cellphone number.

Later that same day, Khuong contacted the commune police, reporting that he had found a backpack matching the police's description in Phu Cat District, Binh Dinh, and had handed it over to police officers in Ngo May Town, Phu Cat.

Pho Cuong police officers later contacted their counterparts in Ngo May to receive the backpack and return it to Alexandrovna, who then continued her trip in Vietnam.

The Russian woman mentioned that she had heard about the commendable actions of Vietnamese police before, but this was the first time she had personally experienced their dedication.

The Duc Pho District police have commended the Pho Cuong Commune police for their prompt and effective actions, which led to the quick recovery of the lost items for the Russian tourist.
