WICHITA (AP) – A Wichita mail carrier says he’s extremely grateful for a letter he recently received.

William Fox says he had been searching frantically for a wallet that went missing on Sept. 12, shortly after he cashed his paycheck. He was convinced someone stole it.

Then Fox received a letter in the mail a few days ago. It was from Flying Donuts in Wichita, telling him to stop by.

The Wichita Eagle reports when Fox went to the store, owner Tricia Davis handed him the wallet, with all the money inside.

Davis says Fox left the wallet but it did not contain a phone number. After waiting a few days and hoping Fox would return, she finally wrote the letter to the address on the driver’s license.
