Family asks for help in finding camera that holds precious memories

E-mail Print PDF

A local couple who lost their toddler daughter in a tragic automobile accident in December is looking for help in regaining the only remaining memories of their child’s last weeks on earth. Alanna Jisha, 14 months old, was lost to her parents, Kent and Ramy Jisha, the night of Dec. 15 when their Ford Excursion slid off an icy bridge and into Lake Fork.

The parents, who operate Happy Tails veterinary clinic in Sulphur Springs, risked their own lives multiple times trying to get her to safety but were unsuccessful.

Now, flyers are popping up all over town with a photo of a happy baby girl, asking people to “Please Help Me Find My Camera” — a Panasonic TZ-5  containing a digital storage card with all the photos and movies taken of Alanna over the last six weeks of her life.

The bag the camera was in was washed away in the aftermath of the accident on the FM 515 bridge between Emory and Yantis. The camera could still be immersed or washed up on shore anywhere, but the data on the digital media card should still be salvageable.

The blue and black nylon camera bag is about 6 inches long and 4 inches wide and has a long, black shoulder strap.  It also has an elastic cord stretched in a criss-cross pattern across the front.

“Please be on the lookout for this bag while on Lake Fork,” Ramy Jisha writes on the flyer. “There’s no telling where it might wash up.”

Anyone who finds the bag can contact the Jishas by calling 903-335-1761 or sending an e-mail to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
