A French travel blogger has asked for help after losing a camera containing a series of topless photos.

Lily Mika, 26, visited the Isle of Skye in Scotland last week, where she posed for a series of artistic topless photos.

The photos were taken as part of her awareness campaign for breast cancer, which entails taking similar shots at beautiful locations around the world.

But during her three-day break to the Scottish island, Mika – who comes from Picardy in France – lost her precious Lumix GX80 camera, which was used to take the pictures.

Mika believes she left the camera at a rest stop near Sligachan, a small settlement in Skye, last Thursday.

Taking to Facebook, Mika wrote: “Need your help to find my lost camera [...]

“I was so impressed with the kindness of Scottish people that I am sure that the people who found my camera are willing to give it back to its owner.”

She also added a little about the justification behind her topless campaign, which she insists is not for “attention”.

“The topless picture is not for catching attention, they are the reason I want to do everything to find my camera.

"All of this is not about the money, the pictures inside are very important for me.

"I’m taking artistic topless pictures in the most beautiful places that I visit.

"My goal is to publish a book with these pictures to empower women, encourage them to become more free and confident and to do what they want.”

She adds: "I also want to raise awareness about breast cancer.

"My grandmother had to fight against it, which is the reason why I chose to do topless pictures.”
