KELOWNA - RCMP are releasing a series of decades-old photos found in Kelowna in an effort to reunite them with their rightful owner.

On Dec. 12, Kelowna RCMP responded to a call in the 1800 block of Copper Road to a report of found property. Officers discovered a treasure trove of abandoned boxes full of Kodak transparency slides and a family album.

The photos are dated from the 1950s and 1970s. One picture of a young man in a suit and bow tie bears the caption, "To: Dad, who would have liked so much to have been there too."

"We know that these photographs had serious sentimental value to someone in our community, and we need help re-uniting them with their memories," said Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey in a press release.

The owner of these photographs, or anyone with information about them, is encouraged to call Const. Remi Desrosiers at 250-762-3300.
