SPOKANE, Wash. - Monday night, a local family was able to recover some priceless memories after a Spokane woman went searching for a lost remote and found a digital camera.
 
After misplacing her remote, Larae Braach was searching through the cushions of her couch when she came across a camera that was not hers, nor did it belong to anyone she knew.
 
Braach's mother had purchased the couch for her in June for $100 and did not hang on to the seller's contact info.
 
With no leads on who the camera belonged to, Braach loaded the photos from the camera onto her TV to search for clues. In many of the photos her new couch sat in the background and in others was the same man in the same uniform with the same woman and baby boy.
 
Included in the photos were memories that a family can't recreate; a baby's first haircut, a baptism and a visit to Santa.
 
Braach immediately placed an ad on Craigslist, where the couch was purchased, hoping the owner would find it.
 
KHQ then aired the story at 5 p.m. Monday in an effort to help reunite the family with the camera.
 
Within minutes of the story airing, a friend of the family seen in the pictures called KHQ and just a few minutes after that, the camera's owner, Sergeant Eric Yaeger, an Army recruiter, called to say his friends had seen him on TV.
Yaeger and Braach plan to meet sometime Tuesday afternoon so he can be reunited with his camera and his family's precious memories.
