SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A San Diego man is asking the public for help finding the owner of a camera card found on Shelter Island.

On April 14, Mark Holdgrafer discovered the memory card in a Shelter Island parking lot, just below his driver's side door when he parked for a day of photography with his wife.

"I let it sit on my desk for a week or so before I checked the contents," Holdgrafer said, cautious he wasn't uploading anything malicious onto his computer. But when he checked, he discovered family photos dating back to about 2016.

Pictures of a wedding, a group playing cards at a table, and many from near San Diego Bay were captured by the mystery owner.

"All of the shots were from around San Diego, many of them from San Diego Bay that looked like they were taken from the parking lot where I found the card," Holdgrafer says. "There were some wedding shots. There were some shots that were taken the day before I found it, so I thought the owner may not have had a chance to copy them off of the card yet."

The wedding shot was taken on July 2018 of "Emma and Brandon," according to Holdgrafer.

Another clue, one photo indicates a clock with "La Mesa" underneath it. Two clocks next to it read and "Falun"and "Isehara" (of possibly Sweden and Japan, respectively).

The card's data indicated the photos were captured using a Nikon D3400 camera. Holdgrafer is reaching out in hopes that someone recognizes the photos and possibly the owner.
