Elgin Twins Get a Chilly Message from the North Pole

A young boy gets an unwelcome Christmas surprise in the mail his letter to Santa was returned by the post office.

Twins Eric and Evan Gilmore wrote letters to Santa Claus because their older brother said if they were good cleaning up the house, their Christmas wishes would be answered.

However Eric’s letter came back with a notification from the post office insufficient address, unable to forward.

Immediately the boy's mom called police.

"No kid should have their letter to Santa sent back. You can't play favorites. That’s a special thing to get a letter back from Santa. One can't get one without the other," says mom, Stacey Gilmore.

Nancy Teafoe, their grandmother, "I didn't think I needed more than the North Pole. Everybody knows Santa is at the North Pole."

The Elgin, Illinois post office says an investigation is underway.

Meanwhile, another copy of Eric’s letter was sent to the North Pole and it looks like it arrived.

Eric received a special phone call from Santa this week thanking him for his letter.
