EDMONTON – A Didsbury woman who was in Edmonton this week is putting out a plea after losing her camera, along with memory cards filled with priceless family photos.

“As with anyone who has ever lost a camera, it’s not the camera so much as it is the pictures that are on the camera,” Lori Svendsen said.

The pictures include a family vacation to Vegas, Seattle, and her son’s band trip.

“And there’s another card in the camera case that has pictures from my mom’s funeral – she recently passed away,” Svendsen added before breaking into tears.

“These pictures are ones I can never get again.”

Svendsen believes she lost her camera while attending the Provincial Skills Canada Competition with her son at the Edmonton Expo Centre on Wednesday.

It’s a black Nikon Coolpix camera, just like the one pictured below, that was in a blue case.


Svendsen is hoping whoever found it will turn it in to the Edmonton Expo Centre, or – at the very least – the memory cards.
