SOMEWHERE in Hervey Bay, a family is missing a photo of someone special.

Angie Fletcher was walking down Honiton St when she spotted a large photo, face down in the gutter near the corner of Denman Camp Rd.

When she turned it over, Ms Fletcher was met with the bright eyes and beaming smile of thick haired toddler in Sepia tones.

Suspecting the vintage photo may have been taken to the nearby Torquay State School for show and tell or a project, Ms Fletcher asked around but couldn't find the owner.

She posted the picture on Facebook but so far, has had no luck in solving the identity of the mystery child in the photo.

"I just thought the photo was so beautiful that whoever the child was, must have been really important to someone," Ms Fletcher said.

"It has probably fallen out of a child's bag or something but hopefully someone sees it and gets it back."

The image likely dates back to the 50s or 60s and the company name Associated Studios is printed in the bottom right hand corner.

Anyone with information can phone 4120 1031.
