OWASSO, Okla. - A lost photo album was returned to its owners after it was lost on an Owasso road.
Zachary Ruttman said he lost the family album when he placed it on top of his truck. He forget it was there when he left and the book landed somewhere along East 116th Street North in Owasso.
The Photos Date Back To The Early 1900s
He told FOX23 the photos inside date back to the early 1900s and depict five generations of the family.
"I thought I was going to get in a lot of trouble. Obviously, I didn't quite take care of it as well as I should have," Ruttman said.
The Album Was Found In A Ditch And Given To Owasso Police
The album fell in a ditch and the pictures scattered everywhere, according to Ruttman. A good Samaritan found it, collected the pictures and took them to the Owasso Police Department.
Police Posted A Photo To Facebook To Find The Owner
Officials posted one of the photos to the Owasso police Facebook page and people recognized Ruttman almost immediately. He said he didn't realize the album was missing at that point.
"I was relieved. I felt kind of a sense of community. It wasn't missing very long," Ruttman said.
