A year after last year's tsunami in March, a boy's football was found in Alaska and will be returned to its rightful owner, a Japanese 16-year-old, according to BBC News.
Misaki Murakami who lives in Rikuzen-takata had his name written on the ball, which was a gift from his friends. Murakami has no other known belongings from the tsunami incident, BBC News reported.
Associated Press reported that the ball was a goodbye gift in 2005 when he was changing schools.
The couple who found the ball, David and Yumi Baxter won't deliver the ball directly because they are "reluctant to visit him" and afraid of causing too much of a commotion, according to Associated Press.
