Lost & Found Wallet

Dear Editor,
My husband Dennis and I found a wallet in the middle of the street just beyond San Pedro Supermarket heading south. It contains a social security card identifying its owner as Jose Pena. We'd really like to get it back to him; I know he must be worried. The only clue we have is that he may live in the San Mateo area. Could you help us find him. Thanks in advance for your help,
