***Family has been located, contacted and made aware that we have the letters. Thank you all for spreading the word. YOU ROCK!!*** In early August of 2017 a citizen located a stack of letters in the road at 4th/Main in South Hutchinson that are postmarked from 1966-1967. The photo is one of the envelopes that was in the stack. They are all addressed to and from the same people and the context in some of the letters appears to be between a son and his parents. We have not been able to locate the owners and are needing help getting these letters back in the hands of the family that they belong to. Please contact our office reference Case #2017-2643 if you have any information.

Officer Zerger applied for our agency in the summer of 2016, and after competing with over 50 applicants for the position, was hired in December of the same year.
