When a picture frame fell off the wall of a home in Temple, the owners discovered a photo tucked in the back that did not belong to their family.

It was Ty Krumnow's seventh grade Little River Academy football portrait from 1986, only he didn't know the poster size version was missing.

Khadijah Reynolds says she first saw the photo at her grandma's house.

"I walked in and saw it, and was like 'Grandma who is that?'," she said.

"Her frame fell off the wall and it was behind a picture of my aunt and it was turned over so I guess it was the white back."

Reynolds says her grandmother doesn't remember where she bought the frame, but she was determined to find the owners.

She posted the photo on Facebook and within a day, had people messaging her, recognizing Ty.

The comments on the post led her to Krumnow's Crumbdough doughnut shop in Holland, which Ty's cousin owns.

"Ty told us to put it up in the doughnut shop because we have so much memorabilia here," Jason Krumnow said.

Now the photo will hang in the shop for dozens of customers to see.

"It will be a conversational piece, I'm glad we had so many people in common that it got to us," Jason said.
