Ground Zero Wedding Photo Returned to Owner 13 Years Later
A wedding photo thought to have been lost forever in the rubble of the September 11th terror attacks, miraculously found its way back home after years of searching for the owner.
Every year on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Elizabeth Keefe tweets a wedding photo found at Ground Zero, hoping to find the owner.
Blake Shelton Helps the Search
The photo was retweeted over 80,000 times. Blake Shelton even helped out when asked to retweet to his fans.

WTC Desk Photo
The photo actually sat on Mahe's desk inside the World Trade Center, Tower 2.
Photo Back Home
Elizabeth met Fred in New York City a few days later to get the photo back where it belongs.
Talk about a happy ending. Does anyone else see a movie being made out of this?
