Mystery couple from stolen camera photos identified

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

UPDATE: Photographer Kristen Frank said on her Facebook page that thanks to people who showed their support and shared the story of the mystery wedding photos, the mother of the bride seen in the photos found on a roll of film has come forward and identified the couple. The couple is Alita and Joe Prosser. They live in Texas, the bride's mother told Kristin. She is working to send the photos to the Prossers as soon as possible.

This is the original report:

A camera was stolen from a wedding ceremony in a New York City church about 10 years ago and the woman who ended up with the roll of film inside of it is searching for the mystery couple shown in the images.

Her hope is social media can help solve the mystery.

Kristen Frank was working at a photography store when a woman sold her a used camera for $5. The woman said she found it on the subway.

Later, Frank discovered the film inside the camera. She developed the photos but had no idea how to find the people they featured so she put the negatives into storage and forgot about them until a few weeks ago.

She decided to post the photos on her Facebook page hoping someone would recognize the couple or the church.

Her friends were able to identify the church as The Advent Lutheran Church at 93rd and Broadway in Manhattan.

Pastor Jay Elise Brown says she remembers someone stealing a camera from the back of a church during a wedding. She doesn't know the couple's names but she does remember that they wanted to be married in that church because the bride's grandparents were married there while her grandfather was on leave during World War II.

It's believed that the wedding took place between 2003-2004.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
