    LAKEWOOD, Wash. - A woman in Lakewood is searching for a "Jake" in the area, who left $5 on her doorstep and a note apologizing for stealing her wind chime.

    The note explains that the chime reminded him and his sister of their deceased mother, who liked butterflies.

    Chrissy Marie posted an inquiry on a Pierce County Facebook group page, hoping to return Jake’s money to him and let him know she wasn’t upset about the chime.

    “Does anyone know Jake?” Marie wrote. “I would like to give this back. So this was on my door this morning. It said: "I am sorry that we stole your windchime. Our mom died and liked butterflies so my sister took it to put by our window. I am very sorry. This is only money I have. Please do not be mad at us.""

    Marie says she has three wind chimes, and that both he and his sister can come to her house and each get their own chime. 

    "Well Jake, I not sure who you are, but you can come get your money back sweetie," Marie wrote. "I am not mad, please come over to my house.”
