Emotional plea over baggage
A FRANTIC search is continuing for luggage lost between Armidale and Dorrigo carrying some very sentimental cargo.
The luggage belongs to Grafton-based wedding photographer Danielle Fisher and contains not just her expensive photographic gear but also the 800 plus shots she had just taken of a friend’s special day in Armidale.
Ms Fisher said the bag was among four pieces of luggage which fell out of a trailer being towed behind a bus last Monday. Their loss was only noticed when the bus stopped at Dorrigo.
Three of the items were subsequently found beside a stretch of the Waterfall Way between 35 and 60 kilometres east of Armidale.
“I spoke to some workmen on the T-intersection at Ebor going to either Grafton or Coffs Harbour, and they said that when the bus rounded the bend towards Coffs Harbour the trailer was empty,” Ms Fisher said.
“As you can imagine these photographs are of no value to anyone else apart from my friend who will have no professional photographs of her wedding and is now understandably sick to the stomach.”
“The missing bag is a large black professional photographer’s backpack.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the police in either Armidale or Dorrigo.
