yeah try to return it,
rule of thumb is the title of the good still retains to the original owner, when you find it in a public area, you are creating a bailment situation(describes a legal relationship in common law where physical possession of personal property (chattels) is transferred from one person (the 'bailor') to another person (the 'bailee') who subsequently holds possession of the property),
the possession of the good is with you, but the title of the good still remains with the original owner. Note that, once you picked this good up, you have a duty of care to take good care of it and take reasonable steps to return it to the owner, if the good is damaged while in your possession, and the original owner is found, he/she could sue for damages.
Unless you just leave it and don't pick up, you don't have a duty of care towards its.
If on the other hand, you picked it up in a private place, it should be returned to the place.
