HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
A picture perfect ending to a story of a lost camera and memories from Maui.
In just 36 hours, Hawaii News Now found the owner of an underwater camera that slipped off during a night dive at Black Rock in 2007 and drifted more than 5 years, and 6-thousand miles to Taiwan.
The mystery unraveled after Hawaii News Now aired a report on Friday that went viral. Facebook fans shared, and shared-- thousands of times. A high school friend of Lindsay Scallan's saw our story, and pointed us to her facebook page Sunday morning. She calls it unbelievable. "Now all my friends are excited" explains Lindsay. "Everyone's talking about it. It's pretty neat."
Lindsay loves Hawaii, and adventurous travel. Her facebook page has a whole album of a diving trip to Kauai two years after she lost her camera on Maui. She's shocked by the blast from her past, and all the sudden media interest.
"You're like a worldwide celebrity now" suggests an Atlanta TV news reporter. "Yeah. I went from just regular boring to you're in my living room" laughs Lindsay.
It's true. Camera crews are clamoring for a piece of the lost camera owner, to learn more about Lindsay's wild twist of fate.
A China Airlines employee found Lindsay's camera on the beach in Taiwan last month. The airline is offering her an all expenses paid vacation to pick it up in person.
It's another surprise for the Georgia woman who never thought she'd see her camera again. "I thought maybe get the pictures email to me, shipped back" says Lindsay. "Then when I hear they want to fly me out there, I was blown away."
Lindsay just started a new job one week ago, but can take unpaid time off to take up China Airlines' offer. If she does, she can get her camera back and enjoy world class diving in Taiwan.
Here's another twist. Hawaii News Now was invited to Taiwan too if we could track down the owner. Mahalo for sharing our story. We wouldn't have found her without you!
We have a slideshow of the pictures that led to Lindsay-- at HawaiiNewsNow.com.
