Bristol Airport are looking for the public's help to reunite some lost love letters from 1950s America with their owners.

Two hand-written letters from 1954 were found in the check-in area at the airport.

Staff made tannoy announcements and trawled CCTV to find who dropped them, but were unsuccessful.

Now, they need your help.

The letters are from a young officer, who was in Fort Sam, Texas, in 1954.

He is writing home to his fiancée in Baltimore and actually saying how he is looking forward to getting married and their forthcoming wedding.

So, I have contacted Fort Sam in America to trace the officer and see if they can help with our search.
