UPS said it found a cache of documents that the Fox News host Tucker Carlson said went missing under mysterious circumstances.

Carlson went on the air Wednesday night to announce the loss of the documents, which he said would be "damning" to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign.

He told viewers his team received the documents from a source recently and that they were related to the Biden family. He did not give other details. 

Carlson did not name the courier in his on-air monologue about the disappearance, but UPS later confirmed to Business Insider that it was the company used.

About midday Thursday, Matthew O'Connor, UPS's senior public-relations manager, told Business Insider that the documents had been found and were on their way back to Carlson.

It remains unclear what happened to them.

He said: "After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return.

"UPS will always focus first on our customers, and will never stop working to solve issues and make things right. We work hard to ensure every package is delivered, including essential goods, precious family belongings and critical healthcare."

O'Connor declined to provide further details when asked.

On Wednesday, Carlson said the documents "are authentic, they're real, and they're damning" to Biden's campaign, without providing any evidence or specifics. 

Carlson's segment was mocked online as having a conspiratorial tone and for not producing any evidence of the existence of the documents.

Carlson, who vocally supports President Donald Trump, has previously hyped poorly sourced allegations about documents relating to Biden's family.

He amplified a New York Post article that claimed to have accessed emails that were damaging to the former vice president's son Hunter Biden. However, as Business Insider's Sonam Sheth has pointed out, the story has many holes and red flags. 

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.
