Fairfield woman seeks to return home video to owner

A Fairfield woman is seeking the public's help to return a home video full of family memories to the rightful owner.



Shawn Hood says after discovering a box of old tapes from her childhood, she sent them out to a digital media company to see what was on them. But one of the videos she got back wasn't hers.



Hood contacted the media company to see if she got someone else's tape in mistake, but was told they only process what they are sent.



She says the video shows a woman in the hospital, about to give birth. The video then cuts to the woman and her new daughter, joined by her husband and parents.



"I know that we cherish these memories and moments of our daughter and I want to make sure that I want to at least try to find this family so they can have their memories too," Hood says.



Hood uploaded clips to YouTube in hopes that someone recognizes the family.



The full tape Hood got back is 25 minutes long and also includes the baby's baptism and her first Halloween, when she was dressed as a Dalmatian.



Hood estimates the video is from sometime in the 1980s or '90s.
