UPDATE: A Washington state woman who started searching for a boy named Jake after he left her a heartbreaking note with a $5 bill stuffed in its folds said she now knows who he is and expects to meet him soon. Christina Reitz found the apology on her door March 3 saying that his sister had stolen one of Reitz’s wind chimes because its butterflies reminded the child of their mother, who had died recently. The note read: “I’m sorry. This is the only money I have. Please do not be mad.” Instead, Reitz was moved, using her Facebook account to try to find him. She posted on a local group page asking if anyone knew Jake, and word of her quest took off. On Thursday, Jake’s aunt posted in the Facebook group revealing that she knew the boy. Reitz said she has been in contact with the family, but members wish to remain anonymous right now.
