Channing Tatum's fans proved that there's still some decent people in the world ...and online.

On Saturday, the 34-year-old actor tweeted to his seven million followers that he had left his backpack in a cab in New York City. "Dropped off at 42nd street in New York City and left my bag in the cab!" he wrote.

Sounding a bit more frantic, he added: "Seriously, left my black backpack in a cab near NYC's 42nd street. If you find it, email me at Thanks!"

Fortunately for Tatum, his plea paid off! "To everyone who tried to help and to the good New York Samaritan who found my bag and asked for nothing in return, thank you," he tweeted on Sunday. "Thank you all!"

The Magic Mike XXL actor wouldn't be the first celebrity to get help from his Twitter followers when it came to lost or stolen items. Tom Hanks turned to the social network when he misplaced his credit car. "A guy named Tony found my credit card on the street in NYC and returned it! Tony! You make this city even greater! Thanx. HANX," the Oscar winner tweeted.

Mark Ruffalo also was able to get his wallet back after a man found it in a cab. "Thank you! Wow!" he wrote to the man that found it. "Another point for the decency in people…you are a hero!"
