A stack of letters written in the 1960s by a man attending Colorado College to his parents in Hutchinson was found on the side of the road last month.
The South Hutchinson Police Department tried to find the owners, but after some time decided to post the letters on Facebook to ask if anyone knew the family.
Shortly after the Wichita Eagle wrote a story about the missing mail, South Hutchinson police say the writer of the letters, Jeff Arbuckle, contacted them.
Arbuckle sent the letters to his parents while he attended college in Colorado Springs. They were postmarked in 1966 and 1967, the police department said the Facebook post.
