HOLMES BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida police department is trying to locate the owner of a prosthetic ear that was found on a beach after a competition.

The Holmes Beach Police Department posted a photo of the rubber ear found in the sand after the "World's Strongest Man" contest on Anna Maria Island, south of Tampa Bay.

Officials told local media on Wednesday that a local resident found the left-sided ear, and they waited a couple of days after the Saturday event to post it on Facebook. Prosthetic ears can cost thousands of dollars.

The social media announcement says anyone who knows the owner can contact the police department.
