Camera Traced Back to Owner after Drifting 6,200 Miles through Pacific Ocean

A camera that recently washed ashore on a Taiwan beach has successfully been traced back to its owner, who had lost it six years ago during a scuba diving excursion in the Pacific Ocean off the Hawaiian coast. Although reports make no mention of the exact model, the pictures of the weather-beaten camera lead us to believe it was either a Canon PowerShot A510 or A520 encased in a Canon WP-DC60 all-weather housing. The camera was found by an employee of Taiwan’s China Airlines, who showed it to his manager, Douglas Chen. After browsing through the photos stored on the unharmed memory card, Chen alerted the company’s Honolulu office, which subsequently launched a nationwide search with help from the media. Based on the published photos, a friend identified the owner as Lindsay Crumbley Scallan, a resident of Georgia, USA, to whom the airline has offered a free return ticket so that she could collect her long-lost camera.
