“It was a part of me because I’ve had it so long. It was a miracle that it stayed in the condition that it’s in. It wasn’t something that hung in the closet. I wore it,“ Osborn told local dailyBangor Daily News.

According to news agency AP, the 92-year-old lost his jacket back in October.

Osborn’s daughter Beverly Amick and other relatives tried to trace the route and asked around the neighbourhood. However, they had little luck finding the jacket.
