    It wasn't long before Melissa Riggs, who works at the airport and is celebrating her birthday, tracked it down. 

    "I am sure everybody that was in this parking lot thought I was insane, but that's OK," Riggs told KPRC. "This will be in my bed tonight ... Thanks Tony! This is pretty awesome, thanks for making this birthday absolutely amazing."

    Riggs doesn't skateboard, but now she plans to learn. She said the find was a great birthday surprise.
