The Kelowna RCMP released photos that were found abandoned after responding to a property complaint on the 1800 block of Cooper Road Wednesday night.

The decades-old photos are being released in the hopes that someone will claim them.

“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.”

Anyone with information on the ownership of the photos can contact Cst. Remi Desrosiers of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
