Just minutes after West Shore RCMP asked for the public’s assistance in identifying a couple whose pictures were found in a lost camera, the rightful owners were discovered!

The camera was found in View Royal on Monday, and the owners contacted police just 15 minutes after their photo was shared with the public on Tuesday.

West Shore RCMP are thanking everyone who helped share the post.


On Monday, a Good Samaritian found a digital camera that was lost near Helmcken Road in View Royal and handed the item over to local police.

Now, West Shore RCMP are looking to return the camera and believe that the couple pictured above are its rightful owners.

“We looked through the photos and are asking the public’s assistance in identifying the people,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar of the West Shore RCMP. “If you know these people, or this is you, please call us so we can return your camera.”

If you are or know the identity of the owners, West Shore RCMP asks that you contact them at 250-474-2264.
