SUN PEAKS - A memory card full of photos found at Sun Peaks is heading home.

Cherryl Rice says her cousin Sylvia Cass was visiting Kamloops at the beginning of April when the card was lost on a day trip at the mountain resort. Cass was on a trip to B.C. to visit cousins in Kamloops and Richmond, but has since returned to London, Ont.

“We touristed her up to Sun Peaks. We just took her up for a day trip from town,” Rice says. “It fell out of a pocket in her camera case.”

Rice says she saw an iNFOnews.ca story about the lost memory card last week and was able to get in contact with Sun Peaks. She picked the card up yesterday, April 18, from Sun Peaks staff member Sam Loxton, who was holding onto the card after posting about it on Facebook April 8.

Cass had already found out from a friend that the card had been found, Rice says, and is thrilled to be getting it back.

Rice says she’s shipping the memory card to her cousin tomorrow, but not before backing it up on her computer, just in case it goes missing again.
