Posted: Updated:

RIVER ROUGE, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan woman has learned that a dog tag marked "Detroit" that was found several years ago in Great Britain was her father's from World War II.

A chunk of metal is missing from the tag, so the final numbers on it are hard to make out. According to published reports the first six match military records for Thurmond Carethers and it's stamped with his last name.

Carethers died in 1983. Maurine Carethers-Tate says she had asked her father about his missing dog tags from his Army service. She says he didn't know what happened to them, but told her that if he ever found them he would make sure she got them.

Barrie Jones and his daughter found the tag in a stone wall in Wales.
