A photo, which was the subject of a police appeal after being found during a raid in a house in Romania, belongs to Sir Richard Branson's family.
Derbyshire Police were trying to find the owners of the photo discovered by police in Vaslui two weeks ago.
The force said it believed the photograph was stolen by a Romanian burglary gang which was then based in the Midlands.
The force has now confirmed that the picture, found alongside jewellery and silverware, is of the Branson family.
"Several members of the public have contacted us in recent days to suggest the picture is that of the Branson family.
"We have identified that this is the case and we are in touch with representatives of the family," a Derbyshire Police spokesperson said.
A Virgin Group spokesperson said: "We can confirm that the pictures do show members of the Branson Family and we are now liaising with Derbyshire Police on this matter."
The photo was found alongside a handwritten note "to Richard" dated 18 July 1995 which says: "To wake you up and so come home safely, love Mum and Dad. "The Global Virgin Challenge."
