"Peace and blessings upon you all, I urge those who know this worker to get in touch with me. I have a free set of gold jewelry for him."

Abdullah al-Qahtani, who tweets as @ensaneyat, told BuzzFeed News he was "confident we would find the worker" and that he got a lot of messages and phone calls from people who rushed to offer him gifts.


Qahtani said the staff at the gold shop told him they had been seeing Abdul Karim outside the shop on a daily basis.

"Greetings. Those who have donated to the worker, please communicate with me via DM. We have found him. Thank God."


"After I announced that I had found him, I was surprised by the amount of calls from Saudi people who wanted to communicate with the cleaner and offer him gifts," Qahtani said.

"I felt how much we are good people, the mutual support and thanks to God," he said. "The feedback has been more than wonderful."
