How the Tommie camera owner was found

Looks like the woman who found the camera with pictures linked to the University of St. Thomas has finally found the owners.

As reported before, Tami Thye-Harold of Colorado found a camera in a seat on a United Airlines plane and tried for months to track down its owners.

The camera contained photos of two people, and the woman recognized, among other things, a University of St. Thomas magnet on the fridge in the background. She contacted the school, which put the story on its online bulletin.

KSTP now reports:

A woman saw the story and pictures in the University's bulletin and recognized the people in the photos as her son and future daughter-in-law.

The woman contacted her son, who then contacted Thye-Harold. They couldn't believe she had the camera after all this time.

Thye-Harold took down their address and will be shipping the camera back to them.
