It took a year, but the happy couple who lost their wedding album at LAX
were finally reunited with it.
(Photo: Los Angeles Airport Police/Facebook)A wedding album that was
lost at LAX a year ago was finally been returned to its owners yesterday,
thanks to the help of social media and some really determined Lost & Found
staff.
 The album was one of several wedding mementos in a briefcase that was
left in the arrivals area of LAX’s international terminal on September
14, 2014 by Safiullah Jabarkhail, a former US Army interpreter who had
spent seven years working with the American military before fleeing his native
Afghanistan with his wife and child last year.
 As the LA Airport Police explained in a Facebook post they put up just
two weeks ago, "Standard protocol for lost items with Airport Police is to
hold an item for 97 days in lost and found, items are then assessed and either
discarded or auctioned off.
Since this item holds such a large sentimental value, Los Angeles Airport
Police could not discard this item and for over a year have been diligently
searching for the owner.

so, the airport police posted on Facebook, Twitter and their own website and
went to the media for help tracking down the couple.
Very shortly after the outreach effort began, a friend of the couple saw the
Facebook post and contacted the police.

In
a very happy ending, a team of the airport police honor guard delivered the
album back to the Jabarkhails at their home in Modesto, California yesterday.
And the timing couldn’t be more perfect: The couple is expecting a
baby in a week.
