Police bid to track down owner of lost photographic gear

DOES any of this camera equipment belong to you? 

South Yorkshire Police is looking to give the gear back to its rightful owner — but have no idea who that is.

The equipment was found at the Woodall service station between junctions 30 and 31 on the M1 and consists of a Canon digital camera and camera bag, a Huawei mobile wifi and a 16GB SD memory card.

A police spokesman said: “The items were sent to police in Sheffield after being found by a member of the public who was passing through the service station. 

“Officers have searched the system to find out if any of the items have been reported as missing but they haven’t been able to find the owner.

"The officers have now turned to Facebook in a bid to try and find them.”

Anyone with information should contact the police on 101, quoting reference number SNIG-F08725.
