CARDIFF-BY-THE SEA, CA (KSWB/CNN) - A woman found a family treasure on the beach.

She's trying to find the rightful owners so she can she can hand it over to them.

"It was about 6 o clock in the morning. I try to get here really early," said Marian Rogers, who thought it would be just another walk on the beach.

"And I always try to walk along the edge of the water that's coming in because I like to get my feet wet, and there was a little bit of seaweed like a little tumble of seaweed," she said. "And in that, I could see that it was something. It was blue, so I pulled the seaweed aside, and it was a camera."

She took the camera home, "and I popped the disk into my computer and, voila, it was somebody's wedding."

Pictures include images of a ceremony, arriving in Tahiti for a honeymoon and another picture with the names Dylan and Lauren, dated June 1, 2012.

"I thought, ‘Oh, this is going to be easy. I'm going to be able to find this couple," Rogers said.

She found the camera in September 2012, and since then, she's tried everything.

"I went to seaside market and put a sign on the bulletin board, and I put up an ad on Craigslist," she said. "I've kind of been stuck."

Rogers hasn't lost hope she's convinced the couple lost the camera by accident.

"The little hook on the camera that would hold the strap is broken, so that's how I think they lost the camera," she said.

Her quest continues.

"People need to share this story," Rogers said. "These are treasures. We're going to find this couple, and it will be heartbreaking if we don't."
