  • LAST MEMORIES Matthew Lorraway and Rebecca Ware

Editor's note: This week Pique published this touching "Letters to the Editor" in the hopes a lost GoPro, containing precious memories could be recovered. This morning the letter writer Amy McArthur contacted us to say that as she reached out to help her friend find his lost camera someone hacked her hotmail account, so she has had to shut it down. Her new email is

You can also reach her in Australia at 04334948996.

If you recognize the description of the camera or have found the SD card that goes with it give her a call.

A good mate of mine Matt Lorraway and his partner Rebecca Ware were visiting Whistler between Feb. 3 and 17, 2013 and stayed in Whistler village.

During their time there, Matty lost his GoPro (camera) on the mountain; likely somewhere near the top of the Creekside Gondola or on the green run down to the village from there.

It was reported lost and they also searched all the lost and found at the time with no luck. He desperately wants it back because (the night they arrived back in Australia) Bec was admitted to hospital. (She) was flown to Townsville Hospital, where she was then diagnosed with leukemia and died five days later due to complications.

They had been together for a couple of years and had both got the travel bug... they had many more adventure planned.

The GoPro itself has a touch screen back with a monster energy sticker. The footage on it is of Bec and Matty on the eco-tour ziptrek and of snowmobiling.

Matt would just love the footage back because it was the last footage he has of them together, and the last moments captured of their time together; who wouldn't?

We would just like to put it out to the world if anyone comes across it or has found it please, please, please call me at 0434948996.

All we are hoping for are the photos back, as they are irreplaceable and are their last memories together.

Please forward this on to as many notice boards as you can, or papers to get the word out. Please, please, please help, it would mean the world!
