RCMP in Kelowna are looking to reunite some old photos with their rightful owner.
Officers were responding to a found property complaint in the 1800 block of Cooper Road Thursday when security officers on patrol came across several boxes of Kodak transparency slides and a family photo album abandoned in the area.
“It’s obvious that the person who left these precious items behind saw no value in them,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “However we know that these photographs had serious sentimental value to someone in our community, and we need help re-uniting them with their memories.”
Police say the owner of the pictures or slides, or anyone with information, can contact Cst. Remi Desrosiers of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
