SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusets woman whose wedding gown was accidentally donated to Goodwill has good news — her dress has been found.

Rachele Familia was on a desperate search to find her wedding dress after it was mistakenly donated to Goodwill.

Familia told WGGB-TV she was storing her wedding dress at her aunt and uncle's house. Familia married in 2004, and her aunt had offered to have her dress preserved and stored as a wedding gift.

Familia says she found out last week that her uncle had accidentally included the dress in a donation to the Palmer Goodwill in March.

The dress had since been sold, as well as her aunt's wedding dress that was included in the donation.

But on Thursday afternoon, Familia posted that the dress had been found and her mom was picking it up later that day.
