Lost World War II Keepsakes Come Home

Posted: Updated:

(KUSA) A Colorado family has been reunited with their mother's World War II era keepsakes after a woman found love letters and newspaper clippings inside a pile of suitcases in the middle of the road.

Charissa Callaway says she had to swerve around the suitcases on her way to work Monday in Denver. When she realized what they were, she decided to pull over and take a closer look.

Callaway later returned Unrein's treasures after tracking down her son.

Val says he and his siblings just lost their mother a few weeks ago.
