A woman has turned to the internet to help her track down the owner of a mysterious 40-year-old wallet she stumbled across.
Rachel Pollard was enjoying a relaxing Mother’s Day lunch at Satwell in Coffs Harbour when her 8-year-old son returned from playing on the beach with a very shabby looking wallet in his hand.
“I thought ‘what does he have there?’” she told Yahoo News Australia adding that the wallet looked so damaged she mistook it for garbage.
“I was about to throw it away when all these cards fell out.”
One of the cards a was photo ID from a ‘Miss Jennifer Sinclair’ who will be tuning 58 in July this year.
“I’d love to give it back to her as a birthday present,” Ms Pollard said.
When an online search for the owner returned no results, Ms Pollard decided to post photos of the find on social media, asking for help to track down the owner.
“Nearly 40-year-old wallet complete with bank card, library card and photo ID has been unsurfaced in Sawtell by some intrepid adventurer children. Possibly from Brisbane,” she posted on Facebook.
“Go internet, find Jennifer!” she added.
People have been jumping on board to try and track down the woman who lost her wallet almost 40 years ago.
“People have been tagging friends they know with the same surname but so far we haven’t found her,” Ms Pollard told Yahoo News Australia.
The wedding celebrant has become quite invested in the story behind the mysterious Ms Sinclair describing her as “a total babe” and has come up with some theories as to why the 18-year-old lost her wallet so long ago.
“Maybe Jennifer threw her wallet into the ocean and ran away so she could start a new life with her true love,” Ms Pollard told Yahoo.
She added that she would gladly help with a romantic ending: “I would love to renew their vows!”.
