I feel I should ask for the redacted email address so I can send my SSN and bank account numbers.
3
Email her to use Google maps, zoom in on the neighborhood, zoom in on the house, note the address and send a lovely Thank You note.
4
Can we send her a Chicago Manual of Style?
5
@4 No need to send a whole manual.
Just a handful of newline bytes will suffice.

@5: Maybe as a good green-minded Scottish girl, she thinks that pressing Enter as sparingly as possible reduces carbon emissions.

Christine and Pete Vall-Spinosa of Medina own a home on Lake Tahoe says the internets.

Not sure there is a huge crowd of Stranger readers in Medina BUT there is a post office that everyone goes to since they have PO Boxesand that would be a great place to start ... I bet if she could figure out their name she could just send her thank you note to the Medina post office and they would get it.

8,

Better still. Mail one thank you note to every post office box in Medina. If the intended recipient has a PO Box, there is a 100% chance of successful delivery.

Its sort of like snail-mail spam

Even better, this goes viral and Bethany gets to fly to New York and appear with the reunited couples on the Today Show.

I'm thinking @7 is the winner!
12
whitepages dot com. It handles hyphenated last names badly, but play around with it a little and you'll figure out how to make it work.
13
this is a really lovely, kind letter. why'd you have to publish it with such a snotty, condescending headline?
14
In case we steer them wrong, we the readers should send all the people of Medina large checks just to be sure we got the right house. They need OUR charity more than we do.
15
@13: Probably to stave off all the people who would reply immediately with TL:DR and eliminate the need to edit the letter for clarity.
16
Where have all the built-in bullshit detectors gone?
Whoever the Espinozas are, they surely don't deserve this kind of trolling.
17
tl;dr
18
Excellent! And the English literature she studied was all written before they formalized paragraphs, of course!
19
I think @7 deserves some kind of Google-Fu award.

@19: Totally.
21
I love a happy ending.
