NEW YORK (AP) - Tom Hank's tweet worked! A student named Lauren who lost her Fordham University ID card has been found.

The Oscar-winning actor tweeted a photo of the card Tuesday after finding it in a park. He covered up the woman's last name with his finger in the photo.

WCBS-TV says it located Fordham senior Lauren Whitmore on Tuesday. She told the station she doesn't have a Twitter account, but one of her professors sent her a link to Twitter and said, "You're famous."

Whitmore says she was jogging in Central Park on Monday when she must have lost the card.

She says if Hanks wants to return it, she'll "surely meet him to do that."

Hanks stars in the upcoming Cold War thriller "Bridge of Spies."
