An Arizona man out kayaking and diving with his family in the Salt River found a wallet lost in the water in 1995 and was able to return it to its owner.

Jeremy Bingham of Mesa said he was on the river with his two brothers, two sisters and sons Taylor, 17, and Zachary, 14, when he found the tattered wallet about 15 feet below the surface of the water near the Goldfield Mine in Apache Junction.

Finding a wallet that was lost and preserved in the river for over 28 years was a real treat — like finding a little time capsule complete with Sears and JCPenny credit cards,” he¬†told the Mesa Tribune.

The wallet contained multiple credit cards and a driver’s license belonging to a woman named Julia Hsia.

Bingham said he spent months searching for Hsia online and was finally able to connect with her on social media.
