A story about a Goldsboro woman who claims love notes from basketball superstar Michael Jordan were taken from her has gotten national attention, and now Laquetta Robinson says she's been told she'll get them back.

ABC11 first spoke with Robinson two weeks ago. She said she learned someone had the high school letters when she saw one on television.

"I see my letter and I'm thinking, what in the world?" she said.

Robinson said Jordan wrote the letters to her nearly 30 years ago. She says she thought they were in her possession.

"That was between him and me," she said. "Not anyone else. It wasn't for anyone else to have knowledge of it. That's something he wrote to me, at that time, out of his heart."

One of the letters and a prom picture landed on the sports memorabilia website Lelands.com, but Robinson told ABC11 she suspects they were taken by a family member and sold.

"Obviously, whoever did it at the time didn't care about my feelings or what was personal to me. They were just out to profit from it," she said.

But Tuesday, Robinson said she's been contacted by Nate D. Sanders Auctions. The company told her it has purchased the stolen love letters and wants to return them to her. All they need is the police report.

Robinson says she's grateful she'll get the letters back, but still wants to know who took them.
