Tom Hanks Tries to Return College Student’s Lost ID Using Twitter

Two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks took to Twitter Tuesday morning to help locate the owner of a lost Fordham University student ID.

Hanks tweeted a picture of the ID to his more than 10 million followers with the caption, “Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park,' he tweeted. 'If you still need it my office will get to you. Hanx.

Though Lauren has yet to personally respond via tweet, with over 5,000 retweets in one afternoon, we’re guessing someone has let the mystery student know of her Twitter fame.

One popular reply seemed to be from the friend of the (sort of) unlucky Fordham student. The tweet has since been deleted. We’re guessing the user got tired of all the notifications.

Other Twitter users have replied with less helpful, but definitely amusing tweets.

We hope Lauren gets her student ID back soon, and maybe a bonus signed picture from sweetheart Hanks himself.
