Lost in the mail: Man searches for mother's missing cremated remains

The remains of a deceased North Dakota woman are lost in transit and no one knows what happened to them.

SEYMORE, Ind. - The cremated remains of a woman have been missing for four months, after being shipped from Grand Forks, North Dakota to Seymour, Indiana.

Donald Mink said he paid North Valley Crematory to mail his mother's remains after she passed away in February at a nursing home.

"It's just been almost four months and I don't know what's going on with my mother's remains," Mink said.

"She just passed away so quickly, we wasn't able to get out there to see her one last time," Mink said. "Then I found out I wouldn't be able to lay her to rest."

Mink said he's tried for months to get answers from the crematory that shipped his mother, as well as the United States Postal Service.

Finally, Mink said the manager of the North Valley Crematory told him the devastating news over the phone.

"I am sorry to inform you your mom's remains have been lost," Mink recounted. "The post office is supposed to be getting ahold of you."
