I gave myself an Apple, but now it's lost...

How can I find the 1 share of Apple stock I bought about 20 years ago? While the press was proclaiming the death of Apple, I bought one share to show my support (!). I could barely run a computer, much less the internet, but somehow I made an online purchase. I now have NO info about it. Any thoughts on how I could track this down? Thanks, smarties!
