Many taxi drivers have been lauded for going out of their way to help a passenger look for a lost item.

In this heartwarming tale of a good Samaritan, the immense effort channelled into locating the owner, wasn’t just limited to a kind taxi driver, but also his daughter.

Here’s her post on 7 May in full.

Phone not usable outside Japan

Unfortunately, the phone isn’t usable outside of Japan unless there is Wi-Fi.

The taxi driver’s daughter shares that her dad initially “failed to realise” that the phone was a “Japanese brand”, and was awaiting a phone call to help locate the owner but to no avail.

Here’s a closer look at the phone model for reference.

Many precious memories left in phone

They simply hope to let the man in the picture know this,

Do let him know that his phone is okay and we want to give it back to him! He has so many memories in this phone!

Faith in humanity restored

If you recognise the man or his daughter in the picture, do contact Kino Kun on Facebook via direct message.

We hope that the phone will be returned to its rightful owner soon — with all its precious photos and memories intact as well.

Kudos to the kind Singaporeans who have gone out of their way to locate the tourist by sharing the post.
