Is This Your Camera?

Did you lose your camera while vacationing in Hawaii? Is it this one above? If so, it's your lucky day! Someone found your camera and you can pick it up ... in Taiwan.

HawaiiNewsNow is trying to find the owners of a camera that washed away on Maui in 2007, and spent a few lazy years exploring the Pacific Ocean, until it was found by an employee of China Airlines on a beach in Taiwan:

Bruce Chen, General Manager of the China Airlines Honolulu Branch says an employee found "something strange" on a beach in Taiwan and took a closer look and realized "Oh this is a camera."

It was a Canon camera, covered in barnacles, with the memories, perfectly preserved inside.

"We checked the memory card and found lots of pictures" says Chen.

The pictures are from an August 2007 diving trip in Kaanapali, where perhaps, the camera drifted away, and the owner wrote it off as gone for good. Until it washed ashore five and a half years later, more than 62-hundred miles away, on the east coast of Taiwan. [...]

The airline has been trying to track down the owner, believed to be a young blond woman seen in many of the pictures.

If that's your picture, you've got a free airline ticket to Taiwan, courtesy of the airline, to pick up your long-lost camera.

Hint: Create a Powerpoint / Word doc / piece of cardboard with your name and address on it. Take a picture of it, and lock the picture so it can't be deleted. At least whoever finds the camera knows who it belongs to, should they be kind enough to return it.
