PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – A 45-year-old Adrian woman has returned a set of military dog tags she found while geocaching to its owner after finding his family in Ypsilanti.
Kelley Piekarek says she found the dog tags hanging from a tree early last month, while she was on a tech-driven treasure hunt in a wooded area near the University of Michigan. She says she began searching for Raymond C. Morin, the soldier whose name is on the tags, when she returned home.
After several failed attempts to find the man, Piekarek says she discovered a listing in Ypsilanti for Henry Morin. She says his wife answered the phone and confirmed the dog tags belong to their 52-year-old son.
The Morins told Piekarek that their son likely lost the dog tags while walking through the woods 25 years ago.
Piekarek met with Raymond Morin and returned the dog tags late last month.
