(CNN) - A bus passenger in San Francisco discovers there are still honest people in the world. He forgot his briefcase on a city bus and figured he'd never see it again. Well, turns out, he was wrong.

"About four seconds after I got off the bus."

"And it just started away."

"There was no catching it."

Michael Hackamack realized as soon as he stepped off the 27 he'd accidentally left his briefcase on the Muni bus.

"My laptop, my wallet, credit cards, checkbook, medications."

And his platinum ring, bracelet and the 14-carats of diamonds that decorate them.

"And I had just gotten, a couple of weeks ago, a thank you letter from Mr.& Mrs. Obama for one of my paintings that now hangs at the White House."

"That was irreplaceable."

Hackamack called the police and filed a report for his valuables, but resigned himself to the fact that, he'd never see them again. Then just five days later, he got a call from Muni's lost and found saying they had his bag, with everything inside, even the jewelry.

"I went 'Oohhh, amazing! Such honesty these days.' That driver deserves a reward, and if I weren't broke, I'd give her cash."

Transit agency spokesperson Paul Rose confirms the lost-and-found case, but tells me Muni is still working to determine exactly who that good samaritan driver is.

"It's not uncommon for an operator to go an extra mile to show an act of kindness. A lot of times, the perception is the other way, and for this type of story to come out for an operator like this, it's a good thing."

"And we would like to give this operator that credit."

And as Hackamack awaits his hopeful reunion, other Muni riders, like san Francisco resident Jill Brenner, are given hope that his good fortune may someday turn into theirs.

"It's just really awesome to see that kind of community in San Francisco."

"I would hope that would happen in my case, as well."

Muni officials are trying to locate the driver so Hackamack can personally offer his thanks.
