CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A local business is looking for a customer who left behind a special token.

When Cynthia Solis found a coin at work, she didn't think much of it.

"I googled it one day and noticed it was a 30-year chip," said Cynthia Solis, a customer service representative at Peerless Cleaners.

When she learned it was an Alcoholics Anonymous medallion, Solis realized how significant her find was.

"It's quite an accomplishment and it's hard for someone to be sober that long,” Solis said. “My husband himself has been sober for 20 years, so I have the utmost respect for that."

Solis said she found the coin when she was sweeping and is keeping the coin at the front desk hoping the owner would return someday.

Meanwhile, the coin has been a conversation starter in the shop.and has inspired many customers.

"I've been having a very positive response with my customers,” Solis said. “They're all encouraging and hoping that it does get back."

Some are even leaving heartfelt messages to pass along to the medallion's owner to motivate them to continue staying sober.

"It's here waiting for them and it says a lot of encouraging words for him or her,” Solis said. “And I pray it finds it rightful owner."
