A father and daughter who were separated for a long time reconnected on the eve of father's day. After 40 years of dissociation, a Story City businesswoman, Cande Coulter, found a way to reunite with her father, Dan Bowers.

Coulter shared the story behind their separation during an interview. She noted that her father's attitude after he came home from a Vietnam war instigated the family's disconnection. Coulter’s parents were a young couple when her dad went to war.

Coulter's father returned home after the war, but the issue was, he wasn't the same person when he returned. Due to his changed attitude, her parents' marriage suffered, and they later divorced.

The businesswoman decided to find her dad after she went through a box her late mother left for her. The box contained series of photos, newspaper reports of her father, and an address of his location.

The woman who had lost connection with Bowers since she was 4-year-old could change her and Bowers' story after she sent him a mail. Few days after the mail, she got a call from her dad, which was how the whole reunion began.

Coulter, who grew up with her mother and stepfather, stated that Bowers' mental health and other issues made him hand over his parental rights. She was later adopted by her stepdad in 1974.

The father and daughter finally lost all ties after she graduated and got married. Coulter discovered the box which had her dad's information after her mother's death.
