Addison Logan, 13 Discovers Long-Lost Photo of Uncle in Garage Sale
13-year-old Addison Logan decided to buy an old Polaroid from a garage sale for $1. When he got home and opened the camera, he found a developed picture stuck in the film cartridge.
Addison didn’t know the person in the photo, but when he showed it to his grandmother, Lois Logan, she was in shock. The lost picture in the random garage sale find was Scott Logan, Addison’s uncle, who passed away 23 years ago in a car accident.
Lois initially thought it was a joke or that the Addison got the picture from one of their relatives. But she and the rest of the family were dumbfounded when they heard Addison’s story.
Lois estimated that the photo was taken 10 years before Scott’s death. The woman in the photo with Scott is Susan Ely, his high school girlfriend.
“The more time has passed, I just realize the astronomical odds of something like that happening. It baffles me and gives me goose bumps to think about,” Blake Logan, Addison’s father explained.
The picture is now displayed on Addison’s desk, next to the Polaroid camera. Addison’s $1 find turned out to be more valuable than anyone initially thought.
