MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - If you were in downtown Mobile during the weekend of February 2 or 3 for Mardi Gras parades and lost something with sentimental value, you may want to call FOX10 News.
One reveler found someone's digital camera and turned it into FOX10 News crews.
A Good Samaritan visited the city that weekend and recovered someone's digital camera.
"We went down to the Mardi Gras parade, the Neptune's Daughters parade, and we were on Government Street," said Sally Ash of Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
After the parade rolled down Government Street, Ash noticed an object in the roadway.
"In the middle of the street there was a little camera and I went out there to get it, and I went around the barricade because cars might run over it and mash it," said Ash.
The camera is a Nikon Coolpix, model S-3300. It contains photos of a family at Bellingrath Gardens, a go-kart track, and Sunday night's Mardi Gras parade, presumably the last pictures taken with it.
"And no one was around to give it to, so I opened it up and looked at some of the pictures," said Ash.
The hotel manager where Ash stayed while in Mobile said to call FOX10 News, and that's how we ended up with the camera.
Mobile police officials said they don't have a designated lost and found for Mardi Gras, but people do turn things in to officers and they encourage it.
They have a command post setup during Mardi Gras on Cedar Street and Government Street.
"It does have a lot of wonderful family pictures, and I'm sure whoever lost it wants it back," said Ash.
Police said keys are the most common item turned in to officers during Mardi Gras.
If you are the owner or know the owners of the camera you can call us at (251) 434 -1040.
