However, instead of taking the cash, she decided to do the right thing.
She tracked down the owner who was visiting the Key City from Lamesa, a town near Midland and mailed the wallet back along with a kind letter.
The owner, Laura Rubio, was so touched, she posted a picture of the letter on Facebook.

Her parents say they couldn't be any prouder and Rubio says she plans on returning to Abilene to personally thank Abbie.
