Woman has surprise reunion with her stolen wallet

An 89-year-old Illinois woman recently got her wallet back, 75 years after it was stolen.

Betty Sissom was contacted by a church pastor who told her that her wallet was found by a plumber who was working on a construction project turning her old school into a church.

The wallet, along with 14 others, was found in a box that was stashed in the wall of the girls' bathroom. All of the cash had been swiped, but her student ID was still in there along with something else that was very special to her -- a photo of her brother.

Betty's brother had died in World War II and that was the only picture she had of him, and after 75 years, she finally had it back.
