(KFOR)  An Oklahoma  man has his phone back after it traveled halfway around the world.

Kevin Whitney of Chickasha says he lost his iPhone last October.

"I had it in my pocket and I bent over to work on a copper bottom door and it fell out of my pocket into my grain pit and went up the elevator," said Whitney.

It disappeared into a bin full of 280,000 pounds of grain.

"I thought I'll never see that phone again," said Whitney.

Little did Kevin know, his iPhone would take a nine month journey halfway around the world before making it back to the palm of his hand.
