Century old bible left in restaurant

By  | 

(WCJB/CNN)-- A bible that is nearly one hundred years old was left in a Virginia restaurant.

Now, the restaurant's manager -- Ruben Navarette -- is trying to get it back to its rightful owner.

The tattered bible was found in a Ziploc bag in the bathroom of the Azzuro restaurant last October.

In the front of the Bible, the name "Eleanor Pauline Dillard" and the date "December 25, 1923" were written.

Navarette has searched both the name and the date, and checked the restaurant's reservation system. So far, he's had no luck finding the owner.
