MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — An Illinois couple is searching for the owner of a lost Christmas gift they believe originated in Martinsburg.
Bonnie and Jack Chavis of Chillicothe, Ill., received a clear, plastic envelope from the U.S. Postal Service with a note stapled to the front apologizing for its condition. Inside, they found the front of an envelope address to them from friends in Missouri. But it also included a Christmas card and gift that was meant for someone else.
The card was addressed to "Candi, Matt, Riley and Caleb" and was signed "Love, A. Jean."
It included a $100 Target gift card. The Chavises called Target and discovered the card was purchased in Martinsburg.
Jack Chavis tells The Journal (http://bit.ly/UceeJ2) he'll give the card to charity if they can't find the owner.
