A young boy discovers an old abandoned car in the forest, and what he finds inside shocks him

DIY & Lifehacks

The Jones family has been hiking for as long as they can remember. The kids enjoy the tranquility and relaxation that nature brings, leading them to frequently visit the surrounding forests.

One day, they embarked on a journey to a location over a hundred miles away from their town. The day was shaping up well, but what they didn’t know was that a sudden discovery would make it the best day they’d had in years.

Indeed, as the family set up their makeshift camp, young Justin decided to take a walk and search for mushrooms. Suddenly, he spotted an abandoned car in the middle of the forest. He began shouting, “Mom! Dad!” but they couldn’t hear him.

As it started getting dark, Justin decided to enter the abandoned car and spend the night there, but at that moment, he heard his father calling his name. Justin was relieved and happy to show his father the old car.

Once they inspected the vehicle, they spotted a box inside with engraved instructions. “If you find this box, please bring it to the address below. – 5/7/1995. Vincent Davis.”

Curious about what was inside, they took a quick look, and the discovery left them astonished. Inside the box were war medals, jewelry, and gold bars.

The father and son realized that the address engraved on the box was not far from where they were. First, they brought the box back to where the rest of the family was. After some time, Justin’s mother and father asked him what he wanted to do with the box.

Without hesitating for a moment, Justin said he wanted to bring it to the person whose address was on it. “Well done. We’re proud of you for making the right choice,” his mother said.

The next day, Justin and his father went to the indicated address and knocked on the door. An elderly lady opened the door and asked if she could help them with anything. That’s when the two of them showed her the box.

“Oh, my God…” she said, tears in her eyes. “My husband found out about 25 years ago that his grandfather had left him an inheritance. His grandfather had buried it in the forest so my husband’s father couldn’t steal it from him,” she began to explain.

“My husband went to retrieve it, but he never came back. We found his body near the highway, frozen. We tried to search for the car, but it was never found in the nearby forests.

It’s a miracle that you found it,” Linda said, wiping her tears. “The authorities said it’s likely his car broke down, and he went for help. He never found help and died along the way. He probably got lost.”

As Linda looked at old photos, the only thought that kept running through her mind was, “Jack, I miss you so much.”

Once she finished examining the items, the woman said, “We never had children, and I have nothing to spend this on. I don’t need the gold, please keep it. I would only like his medals, the photographs, and the jewelry, as it’s my husband’s family legacy.”

The Joneses said they couldn’t accept the gold, but as the lady insisted, they finally agreed.

However, after saying their goodbyes, Justin said to his father, “Dad, Linda’s house looked really old, it almost seemed abandoned. Can we fix it?”

The father agreed, and they both decided to spend the money renovating Linda’s house and then donating the remainder to various charities.
