Picture of love: Sweet photo sparks hunt for elderly couple
IT'S THE photo that sparked the hunt for love.
New York man Blake Ricker decided to take a photo of an elderly couple after their tenderness towards each other caught his attention on the city's subway.
The photo shows the woman leaning and resting her head on the man's forehead while their hands lightly brush each other. The man's smile says it all about the sweet moment.
However, Ricker's stop arrived before he could share the photo with the couple, instead jumping on to social media to hunt down the love birds.
If anyone recognizes this sweet couple, please let me know. I’d love to send them a copy of this picture for them to have. Unfortunately my stop came and I was unable to send them it.— Blake Ricker (@b_ricker) July 18, 2018

The tweet immediately went viral with the photo being shared over 9,000 times and gaining over 20,000 likes.
And the power of social media worked wonders with Ricker announcing he had located the couple late last week.
