Present in Plainfield: Gift-giver sought for Christmas present found along road

Posted:
PLAINFIELD (KWWL) -

It's a mystery gift meant for a mom somewhere with no information on who it's from.

Lisa Downing found the gift along First Street in Plainfield.

"I thought it was just going to get run over," she said. "I had to pick it up and save it and find the person it belonged to."

Since finding the gift December 23rd, Downing has made it her mission to find the gift-giver.

"It seems like it's a little gift from probably a small child to their mommy and it'd be nice to find the mommy it belongs to," said Downing.

Downing created a facebook page in an effort to help spread the word of the mystery gift.

The facebook page is called, "Help me find the person who lost a present for their mommy or mom!" Dozens have followed and shared Downing's facebook page and her mission to help find the rightful owner.

An additional facebook page was started here by Michael Pauling of Waterloo. His page is called, "Gift to: MOM was found in Plainfield, Iowa."

Pauling said he doesn't know Downing, but that he felt compelled to help her spread the word about the mystery gift found in Plainfield.

Downing has notified police about the gift in case the gift-giver reports a missing gift.
