KAMLOOPS - The search is on for a missing camera filled with a Barnhartvale family's memories.
After going for dinner downtown on Saturday, April 16, Terri Hancock-Sehn paid for dinner at Hoja Mongolian Grill in downtown Kamloops but accidentally left her bag behind, which had her camera in it.
She says the camera, a Canon PowerShot SX10, contains a memory card with a number of family events recorded on it, most notably the birth or her baby. Hancock-Sehn says she never quite got around to downloading the photos off the card.
“To not have those newborn photos, there’s a piece missing,” she says. “It’s a piece of your life, right?”
A manager at the restaurant told Hancock-Sehn the camera and bag were no longer at the restaurant when she called the Monday after and says she has since filed a police report but hasn’t heard of any progress.
Since the camera went missing, Hancock-Sehn has reached out on social media, hoping someone might have purchased the camera legitimately and found the images on the card, though she says she’s not too hopeful the card will stay with the camera.
“If someone did buy it, it’s going to go on social media,” she says. “I offered a reward on Kijiji if I could get the memory card.”
She says the memory card has images of her five-month-old son’s birth and her daughter’s secondary school graduation.
If someone has found the memory card, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
