SURREY â€” It’s a mystery solved. The people who lost a camcorder containing family pictures and videos have claimed it from police.
"They are ecstatic," said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann.
Police put out a bulletin hoping Surrey residents would help them return a camcorder to a young family who may be "heartbroken after losing a collection of precious memories."
A black JVC Everio camcorder was turned into the Surrey RCMP during the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair on May 19. It had been found two days earlier on 177B Street between 64th and 60th Avenue.
The camcorder has family pictures and videos of a man, woman, toddler and infant.
"We’re really happy this valuable camcorder was turned in to us by a Good Samaritan," Schumann said. "The pictures and videos of this young family are priceless and could never be replaced."
