The magical shoes, one of five pairs known to still exist, were stolen in August 2005 from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minn., where they were on loan from a private collector.
Now, all these years later, the FBI have managed to locate the slippers, according to USA Today.
Thomas Shaw, the owner of the slippers, got emotional when he told the “Today” show the good news: “It was really one of the most thrilling moments of my life when they said, ‘We’ve got them.'”
