MONTECITO, Calif. - On the third anniversary of the deadly Montecito mudslide Suzanne Hyde found something precious.

The private chef was walking near her home that washed away and found a broken glass figurine of a cat she got on her first trip to Italy.

Someone must have found it and placed it on a new fence by her old driveway.

Hyde shared the photo on a community Facebook group and said it used to be in her curio cabinet.

The bittersweet find made her day as the community came together for a virtual memorial to remember the 23 lives lost, including a teen and toddler who have yet to be found.
