MINOT, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Transportation Department is trying to find the owner of some Christmas gifts that were discovered in a ditch.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1PML6Iy ) that a department maintenance worker found the pile of presents along U.S. Highway 2 between Minot and Berthold two days before Christmas. No one has called to report any missing packages.

Minot District Engineer Jim Redding says the seven wrapped gifts were in a black plastic bag that had broken open, and might have fallen off the back of a pickup truck. He says they have tags with three different first names but not enough identifying information to locate the owner.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Minot district office at 701-857-6925.
