Police say Rachel Castillo found a bag full of money in January at Miami Beach Golf Course. She turned the money over to authorities, who found a name and address in the bag.
The 76-year-old man was no longer living at the address, but officials managed to track him to an assisted living facility.
Police verified that the money belonged to the man, who will get it all back.
If no one had claimed the money in 90 days, Castillo could have kept it.
