Let's all face the fact that we loved the stories of urban explorations. Urban explorers are the ones who enjoy entering random and abandoned places for the sole purpose of capturing the eerie and mysterious things inside.
The motive is clearly stated and understandable but then, there are just some people who are discovering something odd, but they can't do anything about it because of their motto "Take only photographs, leave only footprints". This is quite hard for them especially when they're stumbling across antique artifacts.
However, the motto is there for a reason and this story proves why it is valuable for the explorers to follow such rule!

An explorer had heard of an abandoned house filled with items and he thought that it was a perfect spot to explore so he did! He went late at night and traveled from one street to another just so he wouldn't look suspicious.
His friend told him about this house so they have an idea how to enter without being seen. There was a snow storm outside and it helped make the enter a lot easier. The neighbor's kitchen window faces the entrance of the abandoned house so they'd have to be really sneaky in entering the house.
Once they were inside, they smelled a familiar sent anda familiar sight as well. It was the smell of an old, abandoned and decaying structure completed with the familiar sight of the forgotten belongings.
His adrenaline started pumping quickly so he started to unload his camera.
They then started searching in the kitchen and he know that this house has been hiding something more that's why he was eager to explore it. By the looks of it, the house was completely forgotten.
They also found a hospital bed set up and by the looks of it, it appears that they had passed away sometime in the 80s.
While they were taking a couple of photos of the kitchen and the adjacent bedroom, he noticed something that forced him to investigate everything.
he found a yellow hardware bag tucked behind a bed and after searching what's inside the bag, his jaws dropped and started to sweat.
He was at loss of words because of what he had discovered and he was overly excited so he decided to step back and finish his exploration.
After his discovery, his friend called him and he quickly told him about his discovery and that his friend said that heknew there was something in that house that is begging to be discovered. IT was a feeling that both of them had the right to enter the property.
He finished exploring and did a couple of research about the history of the place. He the found out that the original owner died because of cancer. The home was left to her children and for privacy reasons, he doesn't want to share the other details. The house was then passed on to the three siblings who don't communicate and live a ways away.
After the research, he decided to contact one of the owners and said “I started by telling her how odd this must sound and she may not like the story at the start, but to please hear me out! I am an urban explorer, I am part of a community who finds abandoned houses and takes photos of them. I recently photographed an abandoned house in (town) and I believe it may be your family home”. She was upset with the fact that he enters people’s properties and takes pictures without permission. He explained to her, “I take only photographs, leave only footprints”.
In the hardware bag, he found $6,800 tightly rolled up with a rubber band with dates written on them using a pencil. He wanted to give the money to its rightful owner before the looters take it away.
Of course, the owner was confused, emotional and upset and told him that she needed to talk with her husband. After 30 minutes, she called back and requested to meet with him.
The grandchild of the owner of the house thanked him repeatedly and hugged him and his girlfriend and said that they were lucky that an honest explorer has found it and returned it to them.
