Lost passport

Yesterday, as my wife and I were walking in the neighborhood, I noticed what looked like a passport in the gutter, not far from our home. When I picked up the object, it was indeed a Mexican passport belonging to a 35 year old man.

At first I wondered where I should turn the document, given the current tensions about immigration. I noticed that the passport had been stamped by the Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake which I took as a positive sign.

I then called the Park City Police and was assured that there was absolutely no risk for that individual if he came to retrieve it in person, so I dropped it at their office this morning, on our way to ski.

Hopefully the passport and its owner will be reunited sooner than later!
