United Parcel Service (UPS) reportedly located the contents of Tucker Carlson’s misplaced package on Thursday, shortly after the Fox News anchor said he had received incriminating documents about Joe Biden’s family that were subsequently lost en route to California.
A UPS spokesperson confirmed that company employees found and identified Carlson’s missing package at noon on Thursday, less than 24 hours after Carlson reported it missing to Fox News, according to several news agencies.
“After an extensive search, we found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return,” the spokesman said. “UPS will always focus on our customers first and never stop working to solve problems and make things right,” said the spokesman.
During a segment aired Wednesday as part of his Fox News program Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson said a source had sent confidential documents about Biden’s family to the network earlier in the week.
“We believe that these documents are authentic, genuine and destructive,” he told viewers, and later hinted that the documents referred to the son of presidential candidate Hunter Biden and his businesses in China and Ukraine.
Similar allegations, which reappeared in the weeks leading up to election day, countered accusations against the former vice president in connection with Hunter’s alleged deals. The validity of these allegations was questioned given the timing of their publication and the lack of testimony from the source or definitive evidence to support them.
On Wednesday, Carlson reported on the efforts of the Fox producers to ship the Biden documents to California via a cross-country shipment. He did not specifically name the shipping company during the section, but said that “the Biden documents never arrived in Los Angeles as planned. He said that subsequent correspondence with the postal company confirmed that the package was held up in a sorting facility without the documents.
“On Tuesday morning we received a message from the shipping company that our package had been opened and the contents were missing,” Carlson said, adding, “These documents have disappeared.
He continued, “As of tonight, the company has no idea and no working theory about what happened to this treasure trove of materials, documents directly relevant to the presidential campaign just six days away.
Carlson’s comments about the alleged Biden documents and the missing package met with widespread approval, as many wondered why a news organization would risk sending classified documents by mail before photocopying the pages for safekeeping. Others wondered why Fox News decided to send the documents by mail when they could have been scanned and sent digitally.
