WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. — With her Marine son unable to come home for Christmas, Deana Folz was in such a funk that she joked that she was going to stay in bed for the holiday season.

Tampa television station WFTS reports that three deputies in the Tampa area helped Folz get out of her funk on Friday.

The deputies came to her Wesley Chapel, Florida home and made up a story to get Folz and her husband to come out of their home.

They said they had a man outside without any ID and was seeking their help.

When Folz and her husband came outside, their son, Logan hopped out of the deputies’ patrol car and into his mother’s arms.

Two of the deputies are former Marines.
