In 1976, Dave Clark found a wallet on Lawrencetown Beach in Nova Scotia. The ID was for a young man named Harold Parker. It also contained a photo of a woman named Della. Clark kept the wallet ever since, hoping one day he could return it to its owner.
CPl. Glode found contact information for a man in P.E.I. named Harold Parker, and also for a woman named Della Parker. He left messages. Then, a little while later, his phone rang. It was Harold Parker. "You have my wallet," Parker said right away.
"He was ecstatic that the wallet was making its way back to him after 39 years!" Cpl. Glode said.
Parker lost the wallet while helping someone whose vehicle was stuck on the beach. He and Della were dating at the time and they're now married.
