    I thought this was neat that the police are trying to get these pictures back to their parents. Maybe some great sluethers can help locate. Click on the link to see the photos: http://www.katu.com/news/local/Do-y...-camera-owners-172735361.html?tab=gallery&c=y

    I agree. Returning a 6-year-old camera is usually NOT the business of LE. They must have seen something on those pictures that made them want to find the owners.

    Ditto for me! There is much more going on here. When I first read the story, my thought was why would they circulate photos especially of children? Some people don't like exposing their kids all over the net.

    What's going on?

    BTW, is this in Oregon? It says Washington County.

    Ok, I will take the opposite view, they're just trying to do something nice and return the people's photos. It's good public relations. There are about 6 adults in the photos, surely someone will recognize one of them. And the little baby is about 6 years old now!

    So happy to hear about some good news for a change! I hope the family gets to keep their camera, too.

    after a bunch of snide comments about police taking time to do this, part of one comment:

    /quote When I was a very young mom, I had to leave my couple of bags of groceries in my car while I carried my baby inside. I should have locked the car but didn't. When I got my son safely settled in his crib I went out to grab the groceries and of course they were gone. Those were the days when every penny I had was carefully budgeted. I called the police and they came and took the report. An hour later the two officers returned with bags of food, diapers, formula, and a teddy bear for my son. It made a HUGE impact on me, and I've supported both them and the Sunshine Division ever since. It's people caring for each other. Helping each other when we can. /endquote

    sweet story :)

    I find it a bit disheartening that starting at just 2 posts into this thread, the owners of the cameras were starting to be vilified without much of anything to base it on. Are we really starting to turn into a country where we're all guilty until proven innocent? JMHO but I find it sad at best.

    ITA. Nobody has accused them of doing anything wrong. Police say they are victims of theft. Frankly, I don't think police should have put their photos on the web without permission, but it sure as **** doesn't mean these people did anything wrong.

    Well, it turns out that wasn't the case apparently - but I can see them working hard to return a camera with newborn's photos on it. I'm intrigued by "lost" items too if it is clear they probably have a LOT of sentimental value. Chances are high those photos weren't saved anywhere, and what a gift to get back perhaps the only brand new born pics you have of a child.

    What a happy story.

    I wouldn't want my pictures exposed to the world but that's just me. They may have had good intentions but I wouldn't be a happy camper.

    Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    I lost a roll of film in Europe in the mid nineties and always hoped that someone would track me down. Another time my camera was stolen in Canada containing undeveloped film. I'd be happy if someone developed it and tried to return the film and/or camera to me.

    Although it is disheartening, after all, this is a crime related website. Naturally, we're going to be skeptical. Just glad it's good news, for a change!

    There is a site that tries to reunite owners of lost cameras.

    Just 4 Simple Steps to reunite a Lost or Found Camera!

    People who have found lost cameras try and reunite them with their owner.

    BBM: I get your point, but the crime was clearly stated in the OP, a simple theft and LE trying to reunite the owners with their property, photos of their baby, now 6 years old.

    LOL.....my kids are all so extremely beautiful and wholesome that I would LOVE for the entire world to see what I have accomplished! A police officer, two mangers and a daughter in the AF training to be a Fed! Not that I could share that last one with the world....but still....just so proud. And one of the proudest moments is when they are born!

    If it is I (2 post) I was referring the LE as not being on the up & up. In fact I was thinking it's the pictures we're not seeing. 6 years later is strange to me as well, maybe it was lost in the police department too. But the first thing that actually entered my mind was this case.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...gents-ask-publics-help-risk-mystery-teen.html

    We (public) were led to believe it was the boy that was in danger, and in the end it was he that they wanted.

    I vaguely remember another case where pictures were also found of some children in a daycare and LE were looking for anyone who recognized the daycare or the children. If I find the story, I'll post it.

    I don't think we were wrong in our assumptions. Very rarely do they expose pictures of children without some criminal connection looking for a perp.

    This is the first for me.

    Like I said, different strokes for different folks. It has nothing to do with extremely beautiful CHILDREN. We all think our children are extremely beautiful.

    The point is exposing them all over the internet to total strangers. I have a problem with that. I also have an issue with revealing the location.

    We deal with all sorts of crimes on this board and many times, faces of children are blurred or covered for a reason.

    Why couldn't they just ask if anyone had a camera stolen on such and such a date , reveal the model of the camera?

    Frankly, I still don't get it but whatever.
