A tourist who took a picture of a man with a little girl in front of Notre Dame cathedral just before he caught fire, made an offer on social media to track him down.
Brooke Windsor photographed the unknown man who swung the child with the famous medieval monument in the background.
The picture shows the man who played with the girl in front of the two towers of the cathedral, about an hour before it went up in flames.
Windsor, who visited Paris from her native Michigan, posted the photo on Twitter on Monday evening, a few hours after the fire destroyed the historic building.
She now wants to track down the mysterious man to share the playful image taken during the final moments of the doomed spire of the cathedral.

Bystanders were shocked to see the famous spire of the cathedral collapse in the roof of Notre Dame after the structure caught fire on Monday evening
The 23-year-old wrote: & # 39; I took this photo when we #notreDame left about an hour before it caught fire.
& # 39; I almost went to the father and asked if he wanted it. Now I wish I had it. Twitter if you have magic, help him find it. & # 39;
The photo was taken around 5.55 pm and the fire started 53 minutes later.
When asked about the photo, Windsor clarified that she wasn't sure what the relationship was between the man and the young girl, but assumed it was a father-daughter relationship.
She added in a separate tweet: & I'm not sure if it was a father and a daughter, it's just the dynamics that I perceived from them while debating about interrupting this moment. It could be an uncle, a brother, a friend, who knows until we find them. & # 39;
So far, the tweet has been shared almost 80,000 times and is welcomed by more than 150,000 people around the world who are determined to track down the pair.

The Notre Dame cathedral after the inferno was brought under control. The blaze claimed its historic spire and roof, but retained its bell towers
The fire broke out in the medieval UNESCO world heritage site in the French capital on Monday, with the tower and roof falling to the ground as the flames and clouds of smoke rippled into the sky.
The fire, which at some point threatened the entire building, was brought under control on Tuesday evening about nine hours after it broke out.
The Paris fire chief, Jean-Claude Gallet, said that a huge success of hundreds of firefighters prevented the flames from spreading to the belfry of the north tower.
Gallet said that two-thirds of the roofing of Notre Dame is & # 39; destroyed & # 39 ;.
The fire also brought down the church tower of the church that was 315 feet high.
Some of & # 39; the world's most priceless relics were saved as the inferno rage attack last night when firefighters formed a human chain inside the building destroyed by fire.
