FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - A wallet that was stolen nearly 60 years ago has been returned to a Virginia man.

Seventy-eight-year-old Robert Williams tells media outlets that his wallet was taken 58 years ago while he was working at a gas station in Fredericksburg.

It was recently returned to him by a North Carolina couple who found it inside their home.

Kelly Smith says her husband discovered the wallet stuck against a rafter in the ceiling of their pantry.

Smith searched online to find who it belonged to, using the address on the cards in the billfold.

Her search led to Williams, and she wrote him a letter explaining how the wallet was found.

The wallet didn’t have any money inside, but contained several items like Williams’ Social Security card and draft registration.
