A California man went to a FedEx office over the weekend, and when he used the copier, he found a $50,000 check.
"It could be somebody's savings. It could be someone's down payment for a home," Lee Carson told KGTV.

Lee Carson told KGTV he found the cashier's check under the copy machine's lid. The rightful owner appears to be a man named Frank Prior.
Carson says he wasn't comfortable leaving the pricey check in FedEx's lost and found.
Instead, he says he went to the local police station, but it was closed.
"And I thought if this was my situation, it would certainly rise to the level of an emergency, so I called 911," Carson told KGTV.
The dispatcher said to come back to the station after the weekend. He then tried calling the bank the check was issued from but only reached a call center in Taiwan.
Lee said he'll return to the bank on Tuesday if he can't find Frank Prior before then –– no finder's fee needed.
