A New York woman who was in Indianapolis on Sunday, Feb. 5, for the Super Bowl is trying to reunite a fellow football fan with his camera, which she accidentally ended up with after the game. The woman believes the owner of the camera may live in the Palo Alto area.
Mary Ellen McFaul, a teacher from Long Island, was taking pictures after the game when a fan approached her and asked if she would take a picture of him.
"The photo didn't come out well so he asked me to take another photo on his camera phone and with all the hype/craziness and the staff trying to clear the section we got separated, and I have his camera," McFaul wrote in an email to Palo Alto Online.
"I e-mailed (Palo Alto Online) in particular because when I went through the photos there was a picture of a house from Palo Alto (not sure if it is family member or something)," she wrote.
McFaul created a video with photos of the fan in hopes of returning the camera to its owner. The photos in the video show two fans, one a New York Giants fan and the other a Chicago Bears fan. McFaul is asking anyone who may know one or both of the fans in the photos to e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I am hoping if someone recognizes the people in the photo they can e-mail me and this man can get his priceless photos back," she wrote.
