A group of Disneyland employees found a lost lanyard, which apparently belonged to person with autism— and one of them is attempting to find the owner through social media.

The “cast member,” Emily Fuller Gibby, posted a picture of the lanyard on Facebook asking for the publics help in finding the owner.

The employees found the red lanyard during a pin release. It had four pins on it, and a note attached that read, “hello I am autistic and I don’t talk much but I would like to trade for Mickey pins.”

“So we did what any Cast Member would naturally do. We filled up his lanyard with Mickey pins and got him a Mickey medallion as well!,” Gibby wrote on Facebook.

They believe the owner was visiting with a group, as other kids were seen wearing similar lanyards.

She is asking everyone to help share the post so she can return the lanyard to its rightful owner.

The post has been shared more than 11,000 times on Facebook, and her Instagram post with the same message has over 300 likes.
