MESA, AZ - A Mesa woman wants to say thank you to the Good Samaritan who returned her wallet with something much more valuable than cash inside.
Valeria Valencia lost her wallet a month ago in the parking lot at Main Street and Mesa Drive in Mesa.
It had her cash, credit cards and work permit inside.
As a DREAMer, that work permit is her lifeline, allowing her to go to school and work.
She came to the United States from Mexico 11 years ago.
"It was nerve wracking, I was terrified," she said. "The only thing that mattered to me was my work permit."
Valeria worried someone might steal her work permit and her identity.
On Friday, someone dropped off her wallet at Mesa Community College after they found her wallet with her student ID inside.
Now Valeria just wants to find that person to say thanks.
"I would say thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I consider him a guardian angel right now," Valencia said.
