BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A Florida woman said her wallet was returned to her with its contents intact nine months after she lost it on her way to depositing $153 cash in a bank.

Katt Mucklow of Boca Raton said she lost the wallet nine months ago while she was a student at Boca Raton High School, and eventually gave up on finding it when she set off for the University of South Florida, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

Alette Saylor said she found the wallet while shopping at a Whole Foods store and took it home after employees told her no one had asked about the lost item.

Saylor said she used Facebook to find Mucklow.

"I wrote, 'This is your lucky day. I found your wallet. Please give me a call," Saylor said.

However, Mucklow said she did not see the message for several months.

"I was really weirded out," Mucklow said. "Now I have money, which is good, because I'm a poor college student. And I have gift cards too -- I don't even remember how many. It's all exciting."
