Somebody, somewhere is missing some memories.

Probably a Colorado family that wants its digital memories back - right now.

A digital camera was found on the ground near Coors Field in Denver.

That's probably not uncommon.

What's different in this case, is what the young finder and his family are doing to get it back to its owner.

Connor Jones, who found the camera, says, “We were walking down the sidewalk on our way to see the fireworks at Coors Field, just down here.”

In the camera are what look like treasured moments.

He says, “They're pictures of a woman and her baby, and I think there are some pictures of a zoo trip.

We started to look around to see if we could find anybody who could identify it.”

The owner didn't appear to be in the area so the Jones family posted the lost item on a number of local Web sites and put up signs near where they found the camera at 32nd and Pecos on the 4th of July.

“We check the Web sites and everything all the time to see if anybody replied. So we're just waiting for someone to show up,” he says.

They’ve been waiting for nearly two weeks now but they’re not giving up just yet.

“It's not really fair if they don't get it back. And I don't see why we would keep it anyway. We already have a camera of our own,” he says.

If it means someone gets their memories back Connor says the effort will be worth it.

He says, “We'd want someone to return it if we'd lost it too.”
