COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- We told you on Monday about the good Samaritan who reunited a seven-year-old with her favorite toy. The stuffed elephant had been left accidentally on the side of the highway.
The good Samaritan didn't leave his name when he dropped the toy off, but after the story aired, his family contacted us.
His name is Jerry Dennis, and he works for Suburban Propane in Coopersville. He says he was driving home when he found the backpack that held the toy.
"I had taken the bag and opened it up to see what was in it, and my little boy saw the stuffed animals and he said, 'I bet someone is going to miss those stuffed animals,'" Dennis said. "That is when I thought I would figure out where they went and to get the bag back."
It's interesting to note, too, that Dennis's little boy is seven years old -- the same age as the girl who lost the elephant.
