Lauren Harper was driving when she saw a wrapped gift bouncing on the road, like it had just come off a vehicle. She used social media to track the package to a daycare center where it originated.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Santa Claus evidently has helpers everywhere. Lauren Harper was driving in South Carolina when she saw a wrapped gift bouncing on the road like it'd just come off a vehicle. She stopped, checked for traffic, snagged the present and used social media to track it to a daycare where the gift originated. It was a framed footprint of a baby who attends the daycare. So a footprint left enough footprints behind to be tracked down.
