- Kim Draper received a postcard, which depicts a scene of fishing boats, at her home in Springfield on July 8, 2019.
- That post was postmarked and sent from Hong Kong exactly 26 years ago on July 8, 1993, to a previous family that lived at her address.
- She initially thought the postcard had been delivered to the wrong address when it showed up, but a closer look revealed it had been sent to a previous resident.
- The postcard addressed to Leena and Muhammad Ali Kizilbash is signed “See you guys soon. Your Dad”.
- It also provides details of the man’s travels in Hong Kong, reporting a “really good time in this extremely crowded place.”
- Draper said she is hoping to find the people from the card, but she has not been able to find any promising leads.

- “I was hoping that maybe if someone saw it in our local newspaper, maybe a family member, maybe they could reach out and let me know,”
- Draper told. “I’d really like to meet them. I don’t want to just throw it in the mail.”
