Urn full of ashes lost in the mail; Allison Kelley mails husband's ashes to Florida

Planned was to scatter ashes in the Keys

NORTHWOOD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman says two urns containing her late husband's ashes were lost in the mail when she sent them to his daughter.

Chuck Kelley suffered a heart attack and died in August at age 58.  Allison Kelley sent his ashes to his daughter in Florida so she could scatter them in his favorite fishing spot in the Florida Keys.

But she tells WMUR-TV when the packages arrived, the tape on the box was split open and the two urns packaged in bubble wrap were gone.  Flannel shirts that were packed with the urns arrived.

Kelley said she tracked the package from post offices in New Hampshire to New Jersey and on to Florida.  She's hoping the urns fell out at one of those stops and were recovered.
