Cairns people please help! honeymooners lost camera

Can anyone please help, I am trying to help a couple from HongKong who lost their camera while on their honeymoon around the 18th April, I so far have contacted the Airport, the police, taxi and airport transfers, the sun newspaper and the post (they could not guarantee it would make the paper) it was a Pentax digital camera, there were approx 400 photos of their honeymoon on the memory card, they would be happy to just get the card back,

any suggestions?

Hello Ella,

I'm a Cairns resident, and have also been in touch with Ivan in HK trying to locate his missing camera. I've been in touch with the Taxi company, who do not have a lost property office, as all items are handed in to the Police. I checked with the Cairns Police today, and they assure me that no one has handed in that particular type of camera (Pentax DC). They have a few others, but not that make/model...and not from around that date..(18/4/08)..most are from way earlier.

When I last spoke with Ivan, he wasn't sure if he left it in the cab, or at the airport. I'm flying out to PNG via the Cairns International Airport tomorrow (at 05:00 ..oh, joy) and although I can't remember ever seeing a lost property office there before, I shall check around and see if there is some central area where lost property is handed in. If they have the thing there, I shall give them Ivans' email addy, but if they don't have it, then someone has scored a cheap camera methinks.

If that is the case, I think Ivan may have lost his camera and pics, to someone less-deserving, and will just have to bite the bullet and have a second honeymoon. I'm sure the bride will happily accept that as an alternative.

We can only do so much, and despite the best efforts of all parties, these things can and do, happen.

Cheers mate, and good effort.
