Taylor Ronan and Hayley Gulesian were hours from home when their day took a turn for the worse.
They were driving to pick up Taylor's sister from a train station in Maine, when they stopped at Old Orchard Beach to kill some time.
When it came time to go get her sister, they returned to the car, only to make a terrible discovery.
"We wanted to get some food because we were so hungry," Taylor said. "We walked back to my car and when I opened the center console, I realized my wallet was gone."
They called the Old Orchard Beach Police Department to report the wallet was missing.
They were both shaken up, because having no wallet meant they wouldn't be able to buy enough gas to get home. Luckily, Sgt. Gerard Hamilton was the one that arrived at the scene.
At first, Sgt. Hamilton went the extra mile to try and find the wallet.
"I was definitely shaken up and I told him, 'I really need that wallet because I need to get home tonight'" Taylor recalled. "He was searching for my wallet, walked around the beach and all the houses. It was freezing out [and] he was just so kind about it and going out of his way."
He never found it, but he followed up the search with an even kinder offer.
Hamilton offered to follow them to a station, where he filled up their tank on his own dime.
"Honestly, it's part of a job and and the last thing I'd like to feel is my children broken down on the side of the road, knowing they didn't have any money, or any gas," Hamilton said. "[Taylor and Hayley] were a little set back. They said, 'No, that's OK, we'll try to make it home.' Being a parent, I told them I wasn't going to take no for an answer."
