10News viewers solve mystery of long-lost underwater camera


A La Mesa family has its camera back a day after 10News shared the camera’s contents.

“My phone was about to die. I looked at it,” said Alycen Haynesworth. “A girlfriend had texted me and said, ‘they found your waterproof camera and you’re on 10News. LOL.’”

San Diego divers Mark Schulze and Patty Mooney found the waterproof camera 25 feet underwater off La Jolla Cove last week.

They posted the pictures on Facebook and Craigslist but didn’t get any hits. They shared the pictures with 10News on Monday. Schulze got a call from Haynesworth’s husband that night.

The family was reunited with hundreds of photos and a few videos just a few hundred yards from where it was found.

Haynesworth said the pictures, which go as far back as 2011, are irreplaceable.
