Lost GoPro owner turns up half a world away

THE GoPro lost at sea, discovered by a holidaying Brisbane family, has been claimed by its owner half a world away.

Lina Skjelstad was on an exchange program on the Sunshine Coast from Norway when it went missing.

She was using her brother's GoPro when it was lost at sea with photos and videos dating back to 2012.

Cara Ryan's two young children, Caden, 4, and Aria, 2, picked up the destroyed item on a morning walk along the beach at Goat Island at Maroochydore.

The Australian family of Ms Skjelstad contacted The Daily after seeing the front page, informing it was hers.

Speaking from Norway, Ms Skjelstad called the find by the young family a "miracle".

"This was the most expensive day of my year in Australia," she said with a laugh.

"I broke my phone, lost the GoPro and then broke my surfboard in half.

"But other than that I had a great time here."
