A Gloucester dad is appealing for the return of his daughter's precious memories.
In a message to TiG visitors, Graham Carter wrote:
We experienced an upsetting theft in Gloucester town centre this Saturday afternoon.
On Saturday 29th august around 3pm, we as a family were in Gloucester city centre with our daughter Amy enjoying a coffee in Starbucks.
Around 3.10-3.15pm we finished our coffee and went into the eastgate street Three store to look at their latest products.
Whilst there, our 5 yr old daughter Amy accidently left her Ipod Touch 4g (a Christmas present from 2011) on one of the display cabinets.
We quickly realised that the her ipod was missing and within a few minutes dashed back to the Three store only to be told that no such item had been handed in.
Realising it was an opportunist thief, we quickly gave the details to the local second hand stores (cex, cashconvertors) and then promptly to the Police station to file an incident report.
The three store were extremely helpful and understanding, taking our details and agreeing to look over CCTV footage between 3.10 – 3.25pm Saturday.
An ipod can be replaced, but Amys precious childhood memories in the form of photos and video clips taken by her ipod cannot.
To the person who took this device, this was the look on our precious daughters face when she realised her Christmas gift was gone...
We hope that the person who took her ipod, will see this article and get in touch with either ourselves, the local police or the media.
Thank you for reading...
