    HOLMES BEACH, Fla. - There have been many odd Florida stories posted online, but have you heard this one?

     

    Someone found a prosthetic ear in the sand at Manatee Public Beach last weekend during the 'World’s Strongest Man" competition, local news outlets reported.

     

    The beachgoer turned the ear into Holmes Beach police, who posted photos on Facebook.

     

    The Facebook post asked, “Have you lost an ear?” Thanks to the post and large quantities of social media shares, the owner of the ear has been found.

     

    Police said the department got a call from a woman in South Carolina who told them the ear belonged to her husband.

     

    She said her husband went swimming and when he was trying to put the ear in his pocket, a wave knocked it out of his hand.
