Owner of camera lost for 3 years in NY creek found

A camera lost in a creek in New York's Adirondacks for three years is being returned thanks to clever detective work by a Vermont man who studied pictures on its memory card.

John Noerr of Poultney, Vt., found the camera in July. The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (http://bit.ly/Mc6uqE ) that the camera's memory card had 581 photos Noerr was able to study.

Many of the photos looked like they were taken in New York City. One showed a woman sitting in front of a house numbered 327. Another showed a street sign reading 3rd Street.

Noerr used Google to find the Brooklyn neighborhood, tax records to find the building's owner and social media to contact the family.

The camera's owner, Michael Comeau, says he can't wait to get it back.
