UPDATE: Family with lost home video located

A Jacksonville man has located the family that had lost its treasured memories -- a precious video of a little girl, left in an old VCR.

After our story aired on Action News Jax, the family reached out to connect with Franklin Ritch and they plan to reunite soon.

Ritch bought the VCR at the Jacksonville Beach Goodwill with the intention of giving it to his grandmother.

When he got the device to her house, he realized a VHS tape was still inside.

The label said, “Taylor’s 1st birthday Aug 96, Taylor walking, Halloween, Christmas 96.”

“We all love looking back on tapes of memories and stuff. In fact that’s why my grandmother wanted the VCR, was to watch tapes of her kids growing up,” Ritch said.

Now he’s on a mission to find the family and reunite it with the video.

Taylor would be 21 now.

“She was born in ’95, which actually makes her about my age now, which I thought was kind of cool,” Ritch said.

“At this point, I can’t stop. I’ve got to find out who these people are and how I can get the tape back to them.”

If this is your family, please email news@actionnewsjax.com and we will put you in touch with Ritch to reunite you with the tape.
