aya Saucedo snaps a photo with her now-missing camera. Naya Saucedo and Matt Wright quit their jobs and set off on a year-long backpacking jaunt around the world. But when they returned they discovered to their dismay that their priceless memories had been sold for $19.99.

Saucedo, 33, used her Canon Digital EOS Rebel T3i to take pictures of the adventures she and Wright, 30, had backpacking through Europe and Southeast Asia. But when they returned and started downsizing their belongings, a bag containing her camera was accidentally donated to the Good Will store on Heritage Dr. near Food Lion.

When the couple realized their mistake on July 31, they frantically called Good Will to see if the camera and its memory card was still there – but learned, to their horror, that the camera had been sold the day before.

Now they are desperately seeking the camera’s new owner. They will be glad to buy the camera back, Saucedo said, but what they really want is the camera’s memory card, which contains the photos.

“This mistaken donation of my camera means the photos of my dream-come-true trip are now with someone else,” Saucedo said. “I’ve waited years to have the experiences documented within its memory card. Imagine how devastating it was to learn that my camera and all of my memories were sold for $20. The camera itself is worth about $500 – yet that memory card is absolutely priceless!”
