Father in-law found a camera floating off the cost of California.

[ New ]
Father in-law found a camera floating off the cost of California and he wants to return it to the owner. All I have is the serial number.

What is the best path to getting the camera back to the owner. Btw the water proofing on the camera is very good. It still works.

Hello @notstarman. We appreciate your posting about the camera that you found. It would be best to get in touch with our Support team. They will be able to create a case based on the camera's serial number. This way, you can be notified once the owner calls in. Our Suppor team can be reached through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs . Many thanks!

If it was floating in the water it may have fallen off a surf board etc, in which case the memory card in it may have footage of the user.  You could examine the footage to find out and also contact a local news station or news outlet, they may want to make a little filler story and it could help locate the owner.
