NORTH BEND, OR. -- A North Bend woman has had her faith in humanity bolstered after a good Samaritan found her missing purse.

She said she was heading to Walmart in North Bend, and when she got there she realized her purse was gone.

She believes she left it on her car and it fell off during the drive.

Right after realizing it was gone, she got a call from her mom saying a woman had just returned her purse with everything inside.

"She didn't see me drop it or anything. She was driving down the road, and she saw something that looked like a purse. She kept going, then she decided that 'that's a purse and I'm going to turn around and see if I can locate the person that this belongs to," said the woman who lost her purse, Andrea Juergens.

Juergens said the woman wouldn't take any payment from her family, but she was able to get ahold of her to offer her thanks.
