Nearly 50 years later, WW2 love letters returned to family

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

It's been a nearly half century old love story and for one California couple, it has a happy ending.

A southern California couple now has their stolen love letters back. They were taken from Lloyd and Marion Michael's home in the 70s. They wrote each other while Lloyd served his country during World War 2.

According to a report in the San Jose Mercury News, the Michaels suspect it was neighborhood kids that broke into a shed where the letters were kept and took them.
    
It turns out a stamp collector got his hands on the letters, and his son tracked Lloyd down through military records, and returned the letters.

The letters came back just in time for a big milestone. The Michaels recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary.
