Lost memories ready to be returned
MEMORIES are always important and that's why a Hervey Bay woman has gone to extraordinary lengths to try to return an old camera memory card.
Bernadette Simpson discovered the card when she purchased a second-hand digital photo frame at Lifeline.
She was shocked when she turned it on to see that the frame had a memory card inside full off someone's family photos.
“I couldn't believe it, someone has obviously donated the photo frame and forgotten to take the memory card out,” she said.
Ms Simpson was determined to find the owner of the misplaced memory card and launched a Facebook page with some of the pictures on it a few weeks ago to try and find the original owner.
“There were photos from Christmas and other family events,” she said.
“Facebook seems to connect everyone these days and with a bit of luck I'm hoping I'll be able to return the card to it's rightful owner.”
The page is growing daily with more than 300 members at the time this article went to print.
“There have been plenty of people who said the faces look familiar to them,” Ms Simpson said.
“However, no one has put a name to them and the owner has not yet contacted me through the site.”
Anyone who thinks they know the identity of the family should contact either the Fraser Coast Chronicle on 4120 1058 or Ms Simpson through the Facebook site titled ‘found photos, Hervey Bay, QLD.'
