(Hershey) -- A Dauphin County man has his wallet back nearly four years after it apparently fell out of his pocket while riding the SkyRush roller coaster at Hersheypark.

It was a running family joke to tell the kids to look for dad's wallet every time they visited the park. Jon Anson tells WHTM-TV he got a call from the park that maintenance crews had found his wallet.

Inside were his Hersheypark passes, a $25 gift card to a book store, a gift card to a golf center and a Starbucks card with a balance of 87 cents.

Shaun Cooney of Hersheypark says his team tries its best to reunite lost items with their owners.

Anson has used the remaining 87 cents on his Starbucks card.
