A day after a fire tragically destroyed parts of Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, a woman is asking Twitter to help find a man and young girl. 

Brooke Windsor shared the image of what appears to be a sweet moment between a father and daughter in front of the cathedral. The photo was taken at 5:57 p.m. local time, Windsor said — about an hour before the historic structure caught fire. 

In the photo, a man wearing dark jeans and a dark green jacket smiles as he spins a happy young blonde girl amid a crowd of tourists. The Notre Dame Cathedral in the background appears untouched. Later, it was nearly engulfed in flames. 

“Twitter if you have any magic, help him find this,” she pleaded.

Windsor said she isn’t sure whether it was a dad and daughter in the photo.

“It may be an uncle, brother, friend, who knows until we find them,” she said.

She’s asking everyone to share the photo to help find the man and child, and share this moment.

Her tweet had garnered more than 90,000 retweets as of Tuesday morning.
