A Scottish man whose wallet was taken at a bar 17 years prior was brought together with the tragically missing thing after it was found inside a hedge close to the business.

Ryan Seymour, 37, of Lochgelly, said he was at first confounded when an official from the Dunfermline Police Station reached him on Facebook as of late to inquire as to whether he was feeling the loss of a wallet.

"I at first said I hadn't, yet they disclosed to me it was most likely around 20 years prior," Seymore composed on Twitter. "I began really focusing, and I said 'better believe it, since you notice it, I did quite a while past.'"

Seymour said his wallet was taken during a night out at the Elizabethan bar in Dunfermline around 17 years sooner.

"I had been playing pool with my buddy. I went to the latrine, wallet close by, and put it down on the reservoir," he composed. "Seconds in the wake of coming out I understood I'd left it. I returned in and it was gone as of now. However, clearly somebody had gone in directly at the rear of me and flee with it."

Police disclosed to Seymour the wallet had been found in a hedge close to the bar and was turned in by an individual from general society.

Seymour said the substance of the wallet were for the most part flawless, with the exception of the $85 cash he had inside it. The wallet actually contains his video rental participation card and an old work ID.

"It was simply odd the amount it resembled a smaller than usual time case, it just shipped back to that day," he said.

Examiner Jill Moss of Dunfermline Police Station said officials were eager to assist rejoin Seymour with his lost property.

"We will bend over backward, regardless of how long has passed, to follow proprietors of lost property which is given into our stations," Moss revealed to Fife Today.

"It is incredible to hear that for this situation, a wallet which had been absent for a very long time and recuperated from a bramble - out of every other place on earth - was returned securely to its legitimate proprietor."
