Wonder how many people have emailed him saying he will never see his "expensive" camera again and not to be so numb in the future, Can you really see it being sent back to him?

Who not? I found a camera on the river banks here in Durham, handed into the police station and within a day had a phone call from the owner saying thanks. Am I the only person who would hand one in?

We had a camera bag and full contents handed to us many years ago.

We knew it had to be a tourists camera so we took a load of snaps of touristy things (finished the film in fact).

As we approached the police box (yes - we did work from them) there were a couple of Japanese tourists trying to contact the police to report the loss of their bag.

They were delighted to get the bag and contents back and found it extremely funny that we had taken pictures for them since they had a train to catch so would not have managed to get any simolar shots.


And in answer to Quentins question - there are a lot of lost items (including cameras) handed in that you would expect to 'vanish'

I found one on a bench at the railway station a few years ago, checked the pictures, (priceless - never to be taken again newborn and brother), locked the pictures off and handed it in.
The local paper had quite a snotty letter the next week about people being heartless enough to 'steal' a camera etc etc. When I checked with the station the camera was still there, they hadn't left any contact details whatsoever with the staff so they couldn't let them know. I got in touch with the paper and eventually managed to obtain some contact details and called the chap myself.
A week later I came home and found the chap had called with an enormous boquet of beautiful flowers as a thankyou Smile

Great idea! As long as you don't drop it in the ocean or so...
