MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN- The Postal Service is searching for relatives of a couple who were supposed to get a World War II era letter that was mailed, but maybe never delivered.

The envelope bears an Army Post Office postmark from 1945 and is addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. Sensabaugh" on Washington Avenue in Muskegon, Michigan.

It was sent by Sgt. Myron Cook who was based in New York.

The Postal Service says it appears someone in Minnesota tried to mail the letter again.

The letter appears to have never been opened. A historian in Michigan plans to research the names and will try to find surviving relatives.
