On December 12, 2018, Kelowna RCMP responded to the 1800 block of Cooper Road for a found property complaint. Security officers on patrol in the area stumbled upon several boxes of Kodak transparency slides and a family photo album abandoned in the area.
“It’s obvious that the person who left these precious items behind saw no value in them,” states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “However we know that these photographs had serious sentimental value to someone in our community, and we need help re-uniting them with their memories.”
If you are the owner of these photographs or slides, or you know any of the persons seen in them, please contact Cst. Remi Desrosiers of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

Photograph 2: A page within the photo album, which contains a photograph of a young man dressed in a suit and a bow tie, with the caption “To: Dad, Who would have like so much to have been there too.”
Photograph 3: A page within the photo album, which contains three photographs, dated in the 1950’s;
Photograph 4: Image taken of a Kodachrome Transparency slide of a man and a woman standing together next to an unknown river. This slide was discovered inside a container which had a specific date range from the 1970’s.
