HERSHEY, Pa. (AP/KDKA) -- A Pennsylvania man has his wallet back nearly four years after it apparently fell out of his pocket while riding a roller coaster.

It was a running family joke to tell the kids to look for dad's wallet every time they visited Hersheypark.

"We don't go to Hersheypark and don't mention the missing wallet," said Jen Anson, the man's wife.

But Jon Anson tells WHTM-TV he recently got a call from the park that maintenance crews had found his wallet.

"And God love 'em, they actually think they're gonna find it, and they really look hard for it. So when I got the call that someone actually found it, I just laughed out loud," said Jon.

Inside were his Hersheypark passes, a $25 gift card to a book store, a gift card to a golf center and a Starbucks card with a balance of 87 cents.

Shaun Cooney of Hersheypark says his team tries its best to reunite lost items with their owners.

Anson has used the remaining 87 cents on his Starbucks card.
