ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man who lost his wallet while waterskiing in North Carolina now has it back -- 24 years later.

Burton Maugans of Acworth tells WSB-TV that he received a call from a stranger who knew his age, his name and his birthdate. Maugans said he realized fairly quickly the stranger had found his wallet since it's the only one he'd ever lost.

The Georgia man said he was 18 when he went into the water with his wallet and it disappeared somewhere near Holden Beach in North Carolina. North Carolina resident Jim Parker found it recently and searched the Internet for its owner.

The wallet arrived in the mail in Georgia on Thursday, and still contained Maugans' high school identification from 1987, a library card -- even an old bank card.
