Tom Hanks helps college student find missing ID on Twitter

If you happen to lose anything important to you, you better hope that Tom Hanks is there to find it. 

The two-time Academy Award-winning actor took time out of his schedule Tuesday to help a Fordham University student find her student ID, which he said he stumbled upon in a park.

“Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it my office will get to you. Hanx,” tweeted Hanks. 

Since Hanks tweeted the photo, it has been re-tweeted more than 5,500 times and favorited more than 12,000 times.

Although it isn’t clear if Lauren has reached out to Hanks, NBC New York reported that the wide Twitter reaction may have helped reach a friend of Lauren’s.
