If this is a camera phone, why doesn't she contact the cell phone carrier and request the owner to contact her? If she has access to the phone, call a couple people in his address book and ask if they know the owner. She really needs to post all his pictures on-line?
What am I missing? It's nice that she is looking for him, but there seems to be an easier way.

Since the article was posted, we've learned that the house supposedly in Palo Alto is actually a picture of Steve Jobs' parents' home in Los Altos. So, not likely a relative of the Super Bowl camera owner. Thanks to George Kiriyama of NBC Bay Area for that info.

Wait, I am the guy sticking his tongue out behind the gentleman in question. Hahaha, too funny. You never know how or when a moment of silliness can come back to haunt you and give your friends and family a good laugh. I also posted a link on my fb page to see if anyone knows him. Hope we can help find the owner.

I tried the camera company, unfortunately he did not register it. :-( Thank you to everyone who is helping find this man! I know is might seem silly to some, but something like a Superbowl is a once in a lifetime experience and I am sure this man would love his photos back. Thanks for the tip on Ifoundyourcamera.net I never heard of it and will try that now! Thanks! :-)

Think about it: If you were the guy in the photo and wanted to get your camera back, what is the logical pro-active thing you could do? Answer: Go to the Super Bowl stadium lost-&-found -- which is what she should do.

Alan- I did try stadium security (first place I called when I realized I had the camera) but because I was 2 hours away at that point they told me to hold the camera. I left my name and number with them hoping they would forward any inquiries about missing cameras but unfortunely they did not, even though the owner had made several calls to the stadium. I'm glad I didn't rely on that and pursued the story myself and contacted local papers and tv stations. They were very helpful! Fortunately for the owner I did pursue it because his son saw the story and hewill now get his camera and priceless photos back!
To everyone else- thanks for your positive messages!! I'm so thankful to everyone that helped get the story out there to this man! The owner was so thankful and that means the world to me. :-)
