Season of giving brings back memories to a local family

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - In the season of giving one woman is trying to give back what she found in a shopping center parking lot.

It was a camera, with priceless pictures on it. Now the task is to find the owner.

On a cold, rainy afternoon in the Tates Creek Shopping Center a woman finds something she thinks may be important to someone else.

It was a Cannon digital camera. Dropped off in the hands of the closest store owner, Diana Holleran.

"I just want them to get their pictures back. I mean there's a lot of good family photos on there, and who knows maybe they are getting them developed for this next Christmas. It would be nice for them to have it back."

So how do you find the owner of a random camera with family pictures?

Holleran put it on Facebook, she says these pictures are priceless.

"The memories you can't go back and re do it."

Moments after our interview, Babs Weimann shows up. She's the owner of this prized possession.

The camera has pictures of her family during the Christmas season.

Weimann says, "To have little girls decorate the tree at the age they are next year be a different experience. Having all of that back means the world."

Weimann says the camera dropped out of her husband's coat pocket.

The Weimann's have one more hurdle. The camera was wet and there's a picture of an 8-year-old's birthday on the memory card they can't find.
