A western Michigan postal official says a relative of a couple listed on an unopened letter from 1945 has been identified.
Officials had been seeking the couple's relatives after an unopened letter sent nearly 70 years ago from a sergeant at an Army base in New York state recently surfaced.
Rowe says Baker told him in a phone call that she lived for a short time in the house where the letter was mailed. The house now is empty.
Rowe says he plans to send the letter to Baker next week.
