|Posted: 1/25/2013 9:18:02 PM|***2nd Update: Sunday 1/27***
The story never aired! The story of the deceased man who loved burger king and the whole funeral procession went through the drive through must have been more important!! (Actual story!!)
I didn't have a chance to call the women who set it all up today to find out if/when it will air. What a crazy day of emotions and nervousness ended in disappointment when the clocked turned 11:30 and it wasn't on!!! I was told it was suppose to be on either the 6pm or 11pm news!
***UPDATE 4:12PM 1/26***
Well, the local news station just left MY house!! The story will air tonight and will be online as well. I am beyond words. It has been a crazy day around here! For the locals....WDIV.
Thank you again for everyone that shared the lost camera link on their FB walls and big thanks to Jen for the share that 'got us there'! The camera arrived at Marlene's house a few days ago and was opened today with a news crew!
The camera is home!!!! News Report

That was a great pic of you and I am still amazed that it took less than 5 hours. You can tell how much the Grandma was touched by the whole thing.
I hope they now start to back up their pics more frequently
