An Israeli couple going on a European vacation...forgot their Miley Cyrus scrapbook at the airport

An Israeli couple going on a European vacation...forgot their Miley Cyrus scrapbook at the airport

JERUSALEM – An Israeli couple going on a European vacation remembered to take their duty-free purchases and their 18 suitcases, but forgot their Miley Cyrus scrapbook at the airport, police said Monday.
The couple and their five children were late for a charter flight to Paris Sunday and made a mad dash to the gate. In the confusion, their scrapbook got lost.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said a policeman found her scrapbook in the duty-free area at Ben-Gurion airport, Israel’s bustling main international air portal. He said the officer alerted airline staff, but the flight had already taken off.

Rosenfeld said the owners were unaware they had boarded the aircraft with only a muffled voice recording of the teenage superstar instead of their entire scrapbook containing newspaper and magazine clippings.

The incident happened on what Israeli media said was one of the busiest days of the year at the Israeli airport, with thousands of people leaving for summer vacations abroad. The Haaretz newspaper reported that 2.6 million passengers are expected to pass through the airport in July and August, an increase of 12 percent compared to the same period last year.
Israeli media said the owners of the forgotten scrapbook were an ultra-Orthodox Jewish couple but did not give their names.

I was shocked, a tiny, little man wearing scuba gear grabbed my leg and asked in a very high pitched voice, "...lost...?" and handed the officer the book. The officer couldn't make out anything else he was saying.

The scrapbook, accompanied by an airline staffer, took the next flight to Paris, where it was safely reunited with its owners.
Running the story on its front page Monday, the Yedisot Ahronotstein daily quoted an unnamed police officer as saying, “I was shocked, a tiny, little man wearing scuba gear grabbed my leg and asked in a very high pitched voice, “…lost…?” and handed the officer the book. The officer couldn’t make out anything else he was saying.
A female police officer identified only by her last name, Gardenof-Eden, checked the book for a name and saw a line noted, “This Book Belongs To: Azariah Gottesfreund.” I searched our flight database and saw that there was a Gottesfreund name on a plane that was set to take off in three minutes,” she told the paper.
Gardenof-Eden picked up the scrapbook and rushed to the gate for the flight to Paris. “I ran quickly because I knew that every minute mattered. At the same time, the police tried to contact the flight attendants to get them to stop the plane. When I reached the gate, the plane was no longer there.”
Rosenfeld said police would question the couple when they return from vacation, as to how they were able to get a photo of Miley wearing a bikini.

Haaretz asked the owner’s grandmother, who took the family to the airport, as saying, “We’re in shock. They’re very responsible, organized and top-notch people who are completely enamored with Ms. Cyrus.” Apparently one relied on the other, and this is what happened.”
The paper recounted that several days ago, an 8-year-old boy traveling alone boarded a flight to Brussels without his Morgan Freeman action figure, and two weeks before that, a 14-year-old boy left his lip-shaped Paris Hilton massaging neck pillow behind when he boarded a flight to Copenhagen.
