SOUTHERN ILLINOIS (KFVS) -

Families in southern Illinois say they received photo collages by accident and are now trying to find who they belong to in time for Christmas.

Amber Maltby, of Eldorado, Illinois, said she ordered a photo-blanket from Walmart as a Christmas gift for her sister. Matlby said when the package arrived in the mail, it was someone else’s specialty ordered photo collage.

Maltby said the item she received had what appears to be several family photos put together in a movie strip collage. She would like to get the gift back the rightful owner in time for Christmas.

This isn’t the first package mix-up in the area either. Breeanna Raelynn, of Makanda, Illinois, said she received another family's photo collage blanket in the mail. The blanket has what appears to be several family photos and the name 'Zehner' embroidered on it. Raelynn said she ordered a photo blanket from Walmart for her grandmother this Christmas.

She said Walmart refunded her the $47 and gave her a discount for the purchase of a new blanket. Raelynn said her grandmother’s gift should arrive in time for Christmas.

Walmart customer service told the women there’s no way for the store to track down the families.
