Here She Is! College Student Whose ID Was Found by Tom Hanks Says She Wants it Back
Tom Hanks set Twitter in a frenzy when he found one college student's ID. INSIDE EDITION tracked her down.
After Tom Hanks found a college student's lost ID card during a walk through Central Park, he took to social media to track her down.
Lauren! I found your Student ID in the park. If you still need it my office will get to you. Hanx. pic.twitter.com/Ee9kK4V4qf— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) October 6, 2015
Twitter went into overdrive to track Lauren down and Hanks' message was retweeted 3,000 times.
Finally one of Lauren Whitmore’s professors at Fordham University spotted her. Lauren told INSIDE EDITION: “I get an email from one of my professors saying: ‘You're famous!’”
She is a student at Fordham's Lincoln Center campus where she's a psychology and Spanish major.
She told INSIDE EDITION that she thinks "it's incredible." She added "only in New York" would something like this happen.
She said she already went to get a new ID, which cost her $20. But she would like her old ID back and a chance to meet Tom Hanks.
And it could happen: Hanks is in New York filming the story of Sully Sullenberger -- the hero pilot who landed his plane on the Hudson River.
For Lauren, she had some wise words from Hanks himself on her situation, telling INSIDE EDITION: "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get."
