Scott? Are you Scott?

Four of us are out walking Luke's dog, Wimby, around Lake Glenview.  We see a wallet in the path. Opening it we find $5, a credit card, a train pass, a high school ID and a driver's license for Scott X.  It's such a nice day for a walk we decide to add another mile and a half to our walk and take it back to his house.

As we are walking, Abby spots a cyclist going in the other direction and calls out "Scott?? Are you Scott?" I realize he's recognized the guy from the photo, despite being bundled up and wearing a bike helmet, so we all call out "Scott!" 

He comes back, dazed and confused, but does acknowledge it's his wallet, then rides off, luckier than he has any right to be.
