In true Christmas spirit, Jimmy Fallon has become the cell phone samaritan.

An unidentified commuter left behind an iPhone 5 in a city taxi Saturday afternoon, and the Late Night host found it. Fallon announced as much in a tweet to his 7.2 million followers.

If you lost this iphone 5 in a cab in Manhattan yesterday, I have it!! Call your phone. I can’t wait to get it back to you.

Based on the photo shared, this could go one of two ways: there is a beautiful woman missing her cell phone or the phone dropped out of the trenchcoat of a creeper with a picture of a beautiful woman set as his/her wallpaper. Either way, calling Jimmy Fallon to retrieve your phone sure beats calling the TLC lost and found.

If this happens to be your phone, or you know the person, first give Jimmy a call and then let us know the rest of the story. Good looking out, Fallon!
