Found photos - not mine - find owner or forget about it?

I've accidentally happened upon a cache of someone else's photos on photobucket. Do I reach out to them, forget about it, or delete the account?

The question - do I delete the acct, forget about it, or try and contact this girl and offer to change the email on the acct to hers?
If it matters - the photos are totally benign - I just looked briefly at the main album page on logging in and they all seem to be of her and friends at various high school functions. They are set to private, so it's not like she could still access them. But I know some people would get really freaked out if a random stranger contacted them. Honestly, this internet crap just complicates everything. If it were a wallet full of photos, I'd just turn it in to the nearest police station, or try and contact the person on the ID.
