Turns out the tortoise's name was Lance and he had escaped from his home in Lombard. It was the same tortoise that was on the news a few years earlier because he had escaped and his owners were looking for him. Turns out he was picked up by a visitor to Lombard who thought he was wild and brought him home to St. Charles, but returned him when seeing the story. I was able to get him back to his owners safely."
