Tom Hanks Finds Student's College ID, Uses Twitter To Try And Give It Back (UPDATE)

Lauren might be the luckiest college student ever.

UPDATE (Oct. 7): Lauren from Fordham University has been found!

The student appeared on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, a day after Tom Hanks tweeted at her about her lost ID. Lauren, who doesn't have her own Twitter account, found out about the entire situation via a professor. 

"I'm sitting in the library trying to get homework done, and I get an email with a link to Twitter that said 'You're famous,' " she said.

Lauren admitted that she already bought a new ID card and said she had yet to hear from Hanks' office, before adding, "Tom, I'm here."

PREVIOUSLY: Just another reason to love Tom Hanks.

The actor found a student named Lauren’s ID from Fordham University in the park and took to Twitter in hopes of getting it back to her. (Is there a hashtag yet? Should we start one? #FindLauren!)

“Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it, my office will get it to you. Hanx,” he wrote alongside a photo of the ID card (his thumb covering her full name). Also, can we just take a minute to appreciate that he signed his own tweet, and with a nickname? Best.

Lauren might just be the luckiest college student ever.
