    After visiting Charles Mound this past Sunday, September 2, 2018 my wife and I found a digital camera in the middle of the paved road at the entrance to the access road. It looks like the camera was left on the roof as the vehicle drove away. The camera was in a soft case so it is intact and works fine. There are over 4,000 images on the camera so I would really love to get it back to the owner. We believe it belongs to a man that we passed as he was heading down and we were on the way up. I remembered seeing the case on his belt as we passed. We also believe that he was driving a small blue Subaru vehicle (Crosstrek, I think). If anyone has any information on who this person might be or other forums where this post might help, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Hello,
    I believe you found my camera. I hope you still have it, or at least the pictures. Please let me know how I can arrange to get it back if you still have it. I just discovered this forum, otherwise I would’ve contacted you sooner. Also, you described the right person and car.
    Thanks,
    Derek Rosenau

    If you do not still have the camera, I completely understand – it has been over a month. I did have most of the pictures backed up. You are also correct that I drove off with it on my roof. I realized it 20 minutes down the road and came back – I must have barely missed you on your way down.

    Hope its not too late

    Hello Eric,
    By the way, if you need confirmation that I am who I say I am, I can provide information about the camera and some of the contents of the memory card. The camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7. I can also describe most of the pictures on the memory card, as I downloaded the contents on August 11, which were in file 137_PANA.
    I hope that you see these messages, and I really appreciate what you’ve done so far. Please let me know if you have seen these messages, even if you no longer have the camera or memory card.
    Thanks again.

    Hey Derek,
    I do still have the camera. My wife and I debated whether we should leave the camera at the gate or not but ultimately decided to take it with us and try to find the owner online. We figured that highpointers are a relatively small group so our chances would be good. I’m so glad that you found this post. I was beginning to lose hope that we would find the owner. Send me your email address so I can get your information to send it back to you.

    Thanks,
    Eric
