It's natural to want to find the culprit when you're the victim of a burglary – but the reason this victim wants to track down the thief in question will melt your heart.

Chrissie Marie's wind chimes were stolen from her front porch at her home in Washington in the United States. She may not even have realised until much later, were it not for the cash and the heartbreaking note the thief left behind.

"I am sorry that we stole your wind chime our mum died and liked butterflies so my sister took it to put by our window," the burglar wrote.

"I am sorry. this is only money I have please do not be mad at us. Jake"

Now, the mom of four is on a mission to find the boy. She posted the letter to Facebook on 3 March, hoping to locate Jake.

She doesn't want to punish him, she explains, but give him a gift instead.

"Well Jake, I not sure who you are but you can come get your money back sweetie.

"I had three of those wind chimes you can come back get your money back and have one also so both of you have your own. I am not mad please come over to my house," she wrote on the post.

The post has been shared hundreds of times with people commenting that they wish they could help find Jake.
