Honest Dutchman saves Canadian’s lost vacation photos via Facebook

A man from Holland found a Canon Coolpix camera on an Amsterdam train, full of pictures of a person traveling through Europe. More than 2800 photos were in it.

As an unlikely resort, his son-in-law turned to Facebook, where he posted one of the pictures that showed the apparent camera owner holding a bike with a female companion.

An honest Dutchman saves a Canadian man’s vacation photos via a Facebook post!

The picture urged anyone that would recognize the man or the woman to contact an email address and asked everyone to share the same image on their Facebook page.

Said the Dutchman, Roland van Gogh:

“My father in law found a red Nikon Coolpix camera on 2012-06-20 in the train at the station Amsterdam Amstel in the Netherlands. His photos show a trip throughout Europe from about 2012-05-07. Since 2012-06-15 he stayed in Amsterdam. We would like to give him back the camera and the photos. Please Like, Share and spread this photo around so we can give him back his camera! Thanks!”

Almost 50,000 people shared the picture in less than 24 hours, and this remarkable initiative produced results. A few hours ago, the Dutchman posted on Facebook:

“Looks like we found him! It’s a guy from Canada who is on a trip through Europe.”

Congratulations to Roland van Gogh for this honest gesture and initiative to utilize Facebook in order to locate the camera owner, who most likely is very thrilled, eh? 😀

    Great initiative, the country’s name is the Netherlands though, not Holland.
