MYRNA BROWN, HOST: One minute you have it, the next, it’s gone.

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Let me guess. Your wallet?

BROWN: Yep. Only this is a story about finding a wallet – 40 years after it went missing!

A man from Detroit was visiting Toronto. He found a dainty little wallet wedged into the ductwork at a mall.

The man did some digging and found the daughter of the woman who’d lost that wallet all those years ago. Vanessa Austin spoke to CBC News in Canada.

VANESSA AUSTIN: My mom’s green card from 1984, a Toronto public library card. Yeah, it’s part of our family history.

Her mother immigrated from El Salvador. And what did Austin do with it?

AUSTIN: The first thing I did when I got the wallet is I smelled it. (laughs)

REICHARD:Glad that man sniffed it out!

BROWN: It’s The World and Everything in It.
