The contents of a missing package that never made it to its destination won’t mean much to anyone who finds it, but to a Lexington couple, it means everything.

The missing 10″ x 14″ brown box contains old t-shirts that belonged to Luke Sink, a former Dunbar and Vanderbilt student who died suddenly 20 years ago.

His mother, Kathy, was sending the t-shirts to “Project Repat” in North Carolina to have a quilt made for her husband for Christmas. Sink says she put the box on her doorstep, but the tracking number says it was never scanned.

“It’s just a brown box. There’s nothing remarkable,” Sink said. “The t-shirts are all cut, they’re all useless, except for this. I just thought maybe someone saw something. I don’t want to make any waves, I just want it back.”

Kathy and her husband live in the Southpoint subdivision off Nicholasville Road. If you know anything about the package or saw a pile of cut up t-shirts, call the FOX 56 tipline at 859-299-8630, message us on Facebook or send an email to We’ll put you in touch with the Sink’s.
