E.T. Rescued By CoastguardsE.T. Rescued By Coastguards, Police and coastguards in Old Portsmouth rescued a life-size model of E.T. from the sea last Thursday morning.

A walker had reported a body floating in the water near the coast and called the emergency services, but the authorities soon realized that the body was not that of a person.

The figure was returned to Margaret Wells, of Cosham, Hampshire, who had it stolen from her home together with her jewelry during a burglary in September, Portsmouth’s The News reports.

Wells revealed: “The police rang and said somebody has found a body in the Solent and it belongs to you – it’s E.T. I said, ‘Oh God, I knew E.T. would come home’.”

She added: “He’s lost a finger and looks a bit roughed up. But he had a smile on his face.”

The copy of the title character from Steven Spielberg’s 1982 science-fiction classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial was made for Margaret by her daughter Louise for a stage make-up course nine years ago.

A coastguard spokeswoman said of the incident: “It rolled up on the beach and gave somebody a bit of a fright.”
