NEWNAN, Ga., March 28 (UPI) -- A Georgia woman who lost her camera while scuba diving in Hawaii in 2007 said she was shocked when it washed ashore in Taiwan.

Lindsay Scallan of Newnan said she was upset by the loss of her camera while on a night dive in 2007, but she eventually forgot about the item until Sunday, when she was contacted by a friend, WGCL-TV, Atlanta, reported.

"I get this random message on Facebook from a guy I went to high school with, saying his wife found an article and he thought it was about me and my camera," Scallan said. "An employee of China Airlines found my camera, found the pictures still on the memory card and got in touch with Hawaiian officials to see if they could help find who the owner was, the mystery blond woman as they called it."

Scallan said what began as a scuba diving trip six years ago is now shaping up to be an even bigger adventure.

"China Airlines has offered to pay for me to go out there and my room, board and my food and everything. An all expenses paid trip to come out there and get my camera back and meet the guy that found it. It's been a wild ride," Scallan said.
