Tom Hanks: Lauren from Fordham found
The search for Lauren from Fordham University is over, and Tom Hanks, if you’re listening: She’d really like her ID back.
On Tuesday, the Oscar-winning actor tweeted a photo of the Fordham University student’s ID. “Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it my office will get to you. Hanx,” he wrote.
The college student stopped by Good Morning America on Wednesday morning for the show’s Pop News segment to chat about how her ID ended up missing. According to Lauren, she was on a run and removed her phone from her running armband to snap a quick picture; she didn’t even notice the ID had fallen out. Without a Twitter account, it was up to a professor to point out that she was now, “famous.”
Lauren took the opportunity to give a shout-out to Hanks (“Tom, I’m here!”) in the hopes of having her ID returned. But, she did already pay $20 to get a new one, so this one might just be a keepsake. For the full story, check out the video, below.
