Albuquerque woman hopes to find wedding dress lost in mail


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A wedding dress is something brides dream about long before they say I do. But an Albuquerque woman said she’s scrambling to find one after hers was lost in the mail two weeks before her wedding.

“It meant a lot,” said Desaray Farley.

On Thursday, Farley and her fiancé realized they should’ve already gotten the dress. They then tracked it on the UPS site and found it had arrived in Albuquerque a week earlier.

“They said it came to their distribution center here,” said Farley.

Farley said they then went to the center.

“They hadn’t seen movement on it at all so when I asked if they could find it or locate it, they said that they were unable to,” said Farley.

Farley ordered the dress from China last month. She said it was a deal and a dream dress, costing around $200.

“I spent money buying that dress,” said Farley. “I don’t have a lot of money when we’re buying a house.”

Now the couple, whose wedding is in two weeks, just wants to find it.

“September 9th they scanned it in their warehouse, and then where did it go,” said Farley’s fiancé, David Garcia.

KRQE News 13 contacted UPS. They said they’re investigating the lost package. They wrote, “While every package is important, we understand the excitement of this bride-to-be and want to make sure she knows we are being attentive.”

For Farley, she just hopes it arrives in time.

UPS said they ship more than $18 million packages each day and sometimes they get lost from labels falling off, or mis-sorting or mis-loading, but they always work hard to locate them. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
