Mystery solved! Woman finds owner of lost baby book

Lost baby photo album

COMMERCE, Ga. — A Jackson County woman helped reunite a family with a book of baby photos she found scattered on the streets of downtown Commerce.

Mystyn Wilson says she was walking down Elm Street in front of the Lanier Tech campus when she found several photos on the ground along several blocks and a photo album on the other side of the road.

Wilson took the album home in hopes of finding the family it belongs to. She posted images of the book on Facebook and reached out to Channel 2 Action News for help.

"(The) baby is probably an adult now, I just know someone is going to really be missing this book," Wilson wrote. "I've lost things like this myself and it really eats me up inside... So I'm really hoping to get his back to whomever it belongs to."

Anyone that’s tagged that doesn’t want to be you can untag yourself just figured I’d tag people from the commerce area...

The photos show a smiling family with several generations holding an infant.

Shortly after posted the story on their Facebook page, Wilson found the owners of the photos.

Hallie McElvery, of Commerce, commented on the post, saying: "A box flew open on the trailer while my husband was moving."

McElvery then posted the good news on her Facebook page that the pictures has been found. The two will meet Thursday where Wilson will return the photos to McElvery.

When your baby album flies out of the trailer while you’re moving...and the sweetest lady ever FINDS AND COLLECTS ALL...
