A message-in-a-bottle story for the internet age

Sometime in 2007, a diver on vacation in Maui, Hawaii, USA lost her underwater camera and housing. Last month, it washed up in Taiwan.

The photos were perfectly preserved, and thanks to the efforts of Hawaii News Now, the owner was found just two days after the images started circulating online. Nearly six years after losing her camera, diver Lindsay Scallan from Georgia, USA received a link from a friend: Help Us Find the Owner of This Camera and was “floored.” Read the rest of the story on HawaiiNewsNow.com.
