GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Relatives of a retired police officer from Tybee Island are hoping they can help find a lost badge that holds sentimental value.

WDUN reports that 88-year-old Charles Bishop lost his wallet
Thursday afternoon after running an errand in the Gainesville area
in northeast Georgia.

The badge was pinned inside the wallet.

Bishop's daughter, Frances Wiley, said her father was with a police officer when a police chief was murdered in 1963. The police chief passed out in his arms and died, and the badge was a reminder
of that tragic event.

Wiley is offering a reward for the return of the gold metal badge which includes the word "Major" on it. Other police officers have contacted her and added money to the reward fund, which is now $500.
