Help! Concord Resident Loses Wallet On Canal Trail

September 14, 2020 22:09 pm · 19 comments

A Concord resident lost his wallet on Saturday, and he’s desperately searching for it.

The man was riding his bicycle to work when he lost his wallet, which was full of cash.

He believes it was lost in the area of the canal trail near Treat Blvd.

The owner of the wallet is a very hard working husband, and father of four girls and they really need the money returned.

If you found it, or know who might have it, please send an email to news@claycord.com and we’ll get you in contact with the owner.

I will pray to Saint Anthony for a safe return of your wallet. May God grant you peace.

I really hope a good person finds your wallet and returns it to you, fully loaded.

word to the wise, when you loose a wallet full of cash post it as a wallet with valuable photos or something like that.

good luck!

p.s. don’t carry a lot of cash unless you need to.

As long as you’re praying, I could use a good word or two to help me find my car keys. They gotta be here somewhere!

St, Jude is the saint of the impossible. So prayers for you to him.

I recently couldn’t find my wallet, and figured I either placed it somewhere REALLY stupid, or somehow left it at the last store I visited. I returned to the store the next morning, and she had it under the counter. Another customer had found it in the parking lot and brought it in. I’m never wearing THOSE shorts again!

LOL!

good advice

Ouch! I really hope someone with HUMANITY found it and returns it with the cash! Thinking positive!

I always find it interesting how people think that it will deter criminals to say that the potential victim is “hardworking” and a parent. Seriously, they don’t care. If they’re going to jack you they’re going to jack you.

LOL, no kidding 😉 For some reason that phrasing plays well here. I just feel sorry for all the young, part-time or unemployed, single people out there who will never get any well-wishes in finding their lost wallets.

After being pick-pocketed once in my youth, I sympathize whole-heartedly with any poor soul. It’s not even the losing that’s the worst part– it’s the replacing. Fingers crossed for all those poor lost-walleters out there. I hope you find your stuff.

@Lizzee I was very naive in my youth, having grown up in Claycord. When I lived in LA and was pregnant I told my ex-husband that the gang members who lived in the area wouldn’t bother me because I was pregnant (I thought for some reason that they had a code not to mess with women and children). Boy, did he and his buddy have a real good laugh.

Lost it Saturday and today is Tuesday. If a normal person found it they would have called the owner by now. So either a person who thinks they just made out has the money or it is still lost. I would suggest keep looking it may have landed where it is hard to see.

I have returned 2 wallets, both fully intact and with the money in them. Once in Rome and once in Ohio. Lost my wallet once and it was returned fully intact with the money.

I’ve run out of gas twice. This first time I coasted to my house and the second time I coasted up to a gas pump.

Karma works.

I wish there was a better description of what to look for and where. What color was the wallet and its general shape? It helps a lot to know if you are looking for a black thing under a bush or a dark brown thing. As the owner has been looking, I assume it’s not neon pink that you can’t miss.

Being specific as to the route, including the direction traveled, saves on wasted time for anyone that wants to take a look. It’s unlikely that advertising the particulars of lost property will result in it getting stolen. The only thing that does not need to be advertised is the victim’s name as that won’t help people find a wallet.

Good luck as I agree with Ricardoh – It’s either lost forever as someone found and kept it or it fell into a hard to see spot. I would also look at home and work. Nearly always when I have lost something I later discover I got distracted and misplaced it.

Has the owner checked with the local police/sheriff departments to see if anyone turned it in? Some years ago I found a girl’s wallet on the Canal Trail in PH, had a name inside but no address. I turned it in to PHPD. Perhaps a Good Sam did the same with this wallet.

Dang…was checking the responses on this article hoping that this wallet was found and returned.

Was it full of 50 dollar Bill’s and some 20 dollar bills.

You should have learned the lesson back in the day Mr. Family Man.

If things were that serious put in your sock.

You lost your wallet, with all the homeless, shirtless, druggies going down the bike path without masks, helmets.

Your Wallet is gone. People will even take your DLs and all petty things.

Buy yourself a Tri Fold wallet, or a modern wallet, and keep it on a bike bag, or on a chest and or shoulder pocket.

It’s 2020 put a GPS nano tracker on it. You will never lose your wallet again. Money will probably still be gone from it.

Just 2 Cents.
