Facebook Helps Finding Owners of Wedding Album
Tue 27-11-2012

A wedding album was found near a Fremont childcare center. The owner of a wedding album has been located with the help of social media!

The album was encased in a gold briefcase adorned with the words "Happy Wedding 12/04/2008 in USA" and a wedding picture. The front of the briefcase also read "Vijay weds Ranjit."

After hearing about the find, a Facebook employee began a search on the social media site and found someone who was possibly the husband in the photographs, Fremont police Officer Geneva Bosques said.

The employee messaged the person about the lost album and received a response confirming that he owns it.

With the help of the Facebook employee and people who recognized the couple from the pictures, police have acquired phone numbers and an email address for the husband and are attempting to work with relatives to return the album to the couple, Bosques said. The husband is overseas and said he thought the album was in a storage unit, Bosques said. Police are investigating the possibility of a break-in at the storage facility.
