ONAWA (KWWL) -

He searches for 70 years, and this week, he finally finds the Iowa family he's been looking for.

A woman in Onawa receives a bracelet which belonged to her brother when he served during WWII. He died during the war.

The bracelet came from a veteran who'd been trying to find the family since the war ended.

"We probably knew that he wouldn't be coming back, but it's just a, it's just been a wonderful gift at the end of my life," said Elaine Woods Johnson, his sister. "You know, I'm getting older too. And it's just nice to have that piece to remember him by."

His bracelet is now back home, the same home the veteran grew up in.
