Sharon Day was 16 when she lost her wallet at a high-school dance just to have it be returned to her 54 years later. Day never expected to see it again, especially because the school permanently closed in 2019. A contracting company was hired to renovate the building when they found the wallet while clearing out some ductwork.
Bradly Scott, owner of the contracting company said that these ducts have been bolted shut for decades and contained a bunch of other long lost items. Scott used social media to try to track down the wallet's owner.
"With all the wallet photos and names on the back of wallet photos, with a Social Security card in it, it was like, 'Well, I think we can actually find this person,'" he said
Scott found Day after about a week of searching for her, and she couldn’t believe it and was in shock. She said she is planning to turn photos and other contents of her wallet into a scrapbook.
