    Resident Lyn Vaughan


A woman seen in a selfie discovered on a camera found 3,500 miles away has been identified as an island resident.

Colin Grant contacted The Royal Gazette last week after finding the camera at a bus stop in the village of Balloch, near Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands.

The camera contained hundreds of images taken in Bermuda, as well as a single selfie photograph of an unknown woman.

Mr Grant contacted The Royal Gazette in a bid to track down the owner.

An article and picture that appeared in yesterday’s paper and online sparked several calls and e-mails from people who identified the woman as resident Lyn Vaughan.

Several people also provided the paper with contact information for Ms Vaughan.

Ms Vaughan — who is understood to be still on holiday in Europe — could not be contacted for comment.
