SALT LAKE CITY -- A Salt Lake woman is grateful for a man who returned her lost purse to her house, but she says he left before she could thank him.

On Saturday, Eleonor Balasanian went shopping at a Wal-Mart and left her purse in her cart without realizing it. Leroy Sandoval found the missing purse and drove to her house to return it to her.

Now Eleonor wants to find Leroy to tell him just how grateful she is for his kind actions. "I would like to tell him, ‘Leroy, please find me again. You know my address. I want to see you. I want to hug you. I want to kiss you!'" she said.

The purse contained her credit cards and about $600 in cash, which was all returned.
