Local News

Today a Florida woman with ties to Bellwood, is one step closer to getting a piece of her father’s history back.

Her Dad, Elmer Sheriff, served in World War II, and lost one of his dog tags while in England.

Then this past weekend, English metal detector enthusiast Malcolm Andrews found the tag and started working on getting it back to Sheriff’s family.

“I only found this on Sunday and now I found the actual person, who’s living in a different state if you like, from where that was in the U.S.A., it’s just amazing the power of the internet,” Andrews said.
