A South Dakota man who lost his wallet on a flight to Las Vegas said the missing object was returned to him with a note and a bonus $40.
Hunter Shamatt said his wallet had $60 cash inside it, as well as a check for about $400, when he lost it on an Omaha-Denver Frontier Airlines flight he was taking en route to his sister’s wedding in Las Vegas.
He said the wallet’s contents were boosted when it arrived in the mail about a week later with a letter.
“Hunter, found this on the Frontier flight from Omaha to Denver — row 12 seat F, wedged between the seat and the wall,” the note read. “Thought you might want it back.”
“I rounded your cash up to an even $100 so you could celebrate having your wallet back. Have fun,” the finder wrote.
Shamatt’s mother, Jeannie, posted about the incident on Facebook, and the post eventually helped the family find Todd Brown, the mystery man who returned the wallet.
