CHERRYVALE, Kan. (AP) -

Police in the tiny town of Cherryvale, KS, looking to track down the owner of an abandoned gram of crystal meth, have taken their case to social media.

A bag with methamphetamine was found Sept. 29 at a convenience store in the southeast Kansas community of about 2,300 people. So Cherryvale police politely posted about it on the department's Facebook page.

The post reads: "We are very concerned and would like to find the owner so please notify us and describe the packaging and we will see what we can do for you."

It's been shared nearly 1,700 times. But Police Chief Perry Lambert says no one has come forward as the owner of the illegal stimulant - though he says he's hopeful.
