A Kansas Police Department tracked down the owner of a handmade wallet that had been lost nearly 50 years ago.
The misplaced item was found recently and turned in to officers in Great Bend, a town of about 15,000 some two hours northwest of Wichita.
The long-lost wallet still contained many items, including a social security card and a driver’s license with an expiration date of 1974, The Great Bend Police Department said in a Facebook Post on Thursday.
Cops found the owner, who now lives in Lawrence, Kansas, about three hours East of Great Bend.
The man was “tickled” when he got the call, and told cops that he had in fact lost a wallet sometime in the early 1970s, police said.
The wallet was homemade, the man told police.
“It’s not everyday we have fun stories like this we have to share,” the department said.
“What a great story and it made us smile!”
