Just before 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Lake Country RCMP received reports of multiple abandoned items at the base of a private driveway in the 17000-block of Wall Road. Police responded to the home and seized the large pile of discarded personal belongings.

Among the items is a child’s car seat, a booster seat, a pedal-less balance bike, several clothing items, personal accessories, vehicle floor mats and books.

A CD containing an unidentified family’s professional photographs was also discovered in the discarded items.

“Despite their efforts so far to connect the likely stolen property to another related police investigation, police have been unable to track down the rightful owner of the recovered property,” Kelowna RCMP spokesman Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said.

“Our investigators suspect that the items may have been discarded from a stolen vehicle, and we are certain there is an Okanagan family out there who may wish to have some of these items back,” he said.

In an effort to find the affected individual or family, RCMP have released a photograph of the family featured on the CD and a photograph of the green child’s bicycle.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

*After the items were claimed by the rightful owner on July 4, the family photograph was removed for privacy reasons.*
