Woman hoping to find owner of photos found on Portland sidewalk

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A woman visiting Portland recently found some old family photos laying on a sidewalk and she hopes the public can help find their owner.

Carol Mesimer, who lives in Virginia, was in town for a convention last week and was walking with a friend along Southeast 124th Avenue near Stark Street when they spotted five photos on the sidewalk.

One of the photos appears to be from a 50th birthday party in 1991.

Mesimer said they're in good condition, and she didn't think they were laying on the ground for very long.

Mesimer said it's important that she finds who the photos belong to.

"Family pictures are important. Some people don't have too many pictures of their family, or if they've had a house fire, they've lost all of those," Mesimer said.

Mesimer returned to Virginia with the photos, but she said she will happily send them back to Portland if she finds their owner.
