Social media reunites Montecito family with beloved photo

Little photo found among the mud

Montecito family gets photo back

MONTECITO, Calif. - One little photo found among the mud and debris in Montecito has been returned.

The photo of a little girl found by our news crews Monday morning along East Valley Road was returned Tuesday morning. After posting it on Facebook and sharing the photo on our Midday newscast, we got a hit!

From across the country Christina Tebbe saw herself. The 21-year-old college student called her mother and neither of them could believe it.

"She saw this in Boston," Daphne Tebbe said. "This is crazy, this is my daughter. She's 21 now and she was probably 3 or 4 months old in the photo."

The Tebbe's family home in Montecito had significant damaged in the mudslides. Thankfully the family is safe and now one photo closer to getting back on their feet.
