A painting was found in the 2200 block of Pandosy Street in Kelowna last week and Mounties are looking to return it to its rightful owner.

“The artwork appeared to be abandoned in front of the hospital parking lot,” RCMP said in a press release. “The piece is of high quality and original.”

RCMP are holding on to the piece and said they have yet to figure out if the art was stolen or had been left behind by mistake.
