APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- Employees at an Appleton supper club have been searching for the owner of a special military bracelet for more than a year.

The bracelet memorializes the life of Army Staff Sgt. Derek Farley who died while serving in Afghanistan in 2010. His mother, Carrie Farley, of New York, lost the priceless bracelet while visiting her parents in Appleton in January 2013.

WBAY-TV (http://bit.ly/1hT5w2s ) says staff at Dick and Joan's Supper Club tried calling every Farley in the local phone book, but had no luck finding the bracelet's owner. That's until bar manager Alisa Heiman turned to her daughter for help in putting posting it on Facebook. And, in just 24 hours and many Facebook shares later, the mystery was solved.

Carrie Farley had already scheduled a visit to the Fox Valley for Easter and has been reunited with the bracelet that means so much to her.
