A family who were photographed on holiday in the US have been asked to come forward to police after officers recovered their stolen camera.

Surrey Police said the camera was one of several discovered after arresting a man on suspicion of going equipped for a burglary in Caterham.

Officers identified the owner of one of the other cameras by using the number plate of a camper van pictured.

However, despite trawling the family's photos, they were not identified.

Det Con Phil Leaver, who is leading the investigation, said: "We have been through all the images and while it is clear that the majority were taken on holiday in America, there is nothing in any of the photos which gives us any clue who they are.

"We would really like to trace the owner of this other camera as not only will it prove that it was stolen, but it will also reunite a family with their photos, which are irreplaceable and of huge sentimental value."

The 39-year-old man who was arrested over the theft has been bailed until July 27 pending further enquiries.

Anyone who recognises the family in the photo has been asked to contact Surrey Police.
