Dreamland Villa resident searching for camera’s owner

Bridget Montoya likes to peruse the goods at Sunshine Acres Children’s Home’s thrift store.
One trinket she found, however, has piqued her curiosity.
Digging through unpriced goods, Montoya found a digital camera that was most likely donated to the store—with an SD card holding 219 photographs, most of which are dated 2010 and 2011.
“That little camera caught my eye,” said Montoya, a Dreamland Villa resident. “It was still in its little case. It was probably used for a time, but everybody has cellphones. I was messing with it to make sure it worked. I brought it home and found someone had left their SD card in there.”
The photos appear to be taken on a vacation to the Alamo as well as a military graduation. Montoya speculates the camera was part of an estate donation and wonders if the family knew the card was in it.
“There were a couple ladies who dominate most of the photos,” she said. “They’re taking pictures in front of different canyons and things like that.
“I felt kind of bad. Someone probably passed away and their family packed up their stuff and donated it over there. Both of the women are older ladies. I thought if they took it to Sunshine Acres, someone in this vicinity would know who it was and might want the photos.”
