Question for Tom Hanks: Wilson, is that really you?
HAS Wilson the famous companion from Tom Hanks' 2000 movie Cast Away, been found washed up on a beach?
The ball's ID and credit cards read 'Wilson!' and its identity was confirmed via barnacles on its underside and facial recognition software, we are led to believe.
When asked about its ordeal the volleyball said nothing, lacking the appropriate anatomy for speech.
Wilson was found near Eli Creek by a Volunteer in Policing member from Maryborough.
Maryborough Police had some Facebook fun over the find.
"Whilst travelling along the Eastern Beach on Fraser Island near Eli Creek - A Volunteer In Policing member from Maryborough observed a rather unusal sight.
"Remember the movie "Cast Away" with Tom Hanks and the ever so infamous "Wilson" (volleyball).
"Well would you believe the same was located on the beach, barnacles and all.
"Rather amazing when you think about it considering there are all sorts of treasures that turn up on the beach. Next time when you are travelling - keep a look out, you could find anything!
"Or maybe it was his cousin? Wilson the basketball?
"Have you ever found something like this wash up before? If so, what and where?"
Is this Wilson the volleyball?
