‘Runaway bride? More like, runaway dress!’ Queensland Police posted on its Facebook page.

A local resident found the dress and veil neatly folded in a box left on the road in a carpark of holiday units in Hermitage Drive, Airlie Beach at around midday on September 21.

Inquiries made by Whitsunday Police in the surrounding area to locate the owner have been unsuccessful.
