Lost camera found in Crystal River After 7 years

Lost camera found in Crystal River After 7 years

Dustin Molina just so happened to see it while out on a manatee tour. “I’m watching this manatee eat, and that pretty much leads me to a camera just sitting there in the sands,” he recalled.

Seven years, to be exact — that’s how long the Olympus camera had been in Kings Bay.

The camera looked worse for wear, but Molina and his coworkers at the Plantation Adventure Center in Crystal River started looking through the memory card.

“There’s 2,380 pictures on this,” he said, “And it wasn’t just pictures of visiting Crystal River, kayaking or what-not. There’s pictures from numerous family vacations with this family.”

The pictures date back to 2012, so the team set out to look for the owners.

Thousands of Facebook shares and hundreds of comments finally led them to the family in the photos.

Lori Stephens and her family were visiting Florida — a place they’ve always enjoyed visiting — when they lost the camera

“We come to Florida all the time and enjoy all that Florida has to offer,” Stephens told Spectrum Bay News 9.

Stephens said she knows exactly where in the river they dropped it, and they searched an hour with no luck. Now, seven years later, it showed up.

“This was our first time paddle boarding,” she said. “We always wanted to try it, and it was a beautiful day. And as soon as we got out there, we saw maybe 8-10 manatees come around and in my excitement, I did not have the little wrist strap attached to the little waterproof camera, and it slipped in the water.” The Stephens plan to make a trip down to Florida in a few weeks for Lori’s 60th birthday and will be reunited with their camera. She said she couldn’t be more thankful for everyone who came together to make sure her memories were not lost forever
