WELLS, TX (KTRE) -

A Wells woman and a few of her friends are searching for a little boy after they found his Christmas list in a horse pasture.


"Yesterday afternoon, I came over here to feed my horses of course, and we went to check the pond,” said Karla Stanford of Wells.

It's a usual routine for Stanford, but yesterday, she discovered something that was anything but usual.

“I happened to see a blue something, we didn't know what, near the brush,” Stanford said. “I thought 'how did that get in this pasture, who's been over here’.”

That blue something was a balloon with a note attached, half of it written in English, the other in Spanish. After finding a translator, Stanford realized it was a letter to Santa from a little boy, asking for only a few gifts to share with his family.

"Any child that is concerned with sharing with their family, I'm going to see what I can do to find that child and make sure he gets what he asks from Santa,” Stanford said.

Stanford is planning to buy every item on the list with a few friends, but  there's no telling where the letter came from.

"There's no address on here, but his name is Homero,” Stanford said.

Stanford and her friends are determined to find him, reaching out to the community on Facebook.

As a mother and grandmother herself, finding Homero mean everything to Stanford.

"It's very important to us , I don't want to go to bed , Christmas night and not know that he's not gotten at least something that he's asked for,” Stanford said.

Those who know Homero and his family are asked to contact either Karla Stanford or Shay Stanford on Facebook. The women are going shopping for the items on the list Sunday and ask the community to reach out and join them.
