Oct. 8 (UPI) -- Police in Kansas said a wallet that was returned to its owner had been missing since the early 1970s.

The Great Bend Police Department said in a Facebook post that a wallet recently was turned in to the department by a member of the public, and officers found several items including a Social Security card and a driver's license inside -- although the license had expired in 1974.


The department said officers were able to get into contact with the wallet's owner, who now lives in Lawrence, Kan. The owner told police he had lost the wallet in the early 1970s.

"He was tickled and shared with us that he made the wallet himself," the post said.
