A laptop containing irreplaceable family photos chronicling a young boy’s cancer fight has been stolen.
Rosalie Barnes has appealed for the thief to ‘have a heart’ and return the computer, which contains photos of her son Alex Barnes, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour aged three.
Fleckney youngster Alex underwent pioneering treatment in the US and last month at the age of nine was given the all clear.
The laptop, take from a business unit in Temple Road, Leicester, at about 3.30pm on Tuesday, also contains information about the Alex Barnes Proton Therapy Charity and the Kids ‘N’ Cancer UK charity.
Officers from Spinney Hill Park Police Station have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the theft of the black Toshiba laptop.
Rosalie said: “It is so important for me to get the laptop back as it holds vital information relating to my charity work.
“It also contains photos of when my son Alex was ill, which are very sentimental to the family. There was also a CD inside the laptop bag which contains photos taken earlier this month when Alex was given the ‘all clear’ from cancer.
“I am appealing to whoever took the laptop to have a heart and please return it to me.”
Police Sgt Jim Kroczak said: “It is really important that this laptop is recovered, not only because of the information it holds in relation to the charity but also for the important family photos which will otherwise be lost.
“I appeal to people to look at the CCTV image and contact the police immediately if you recognise this man or have any information about the theft of this laptop.
“You may have been offered a black Toshiba laptop in suspicious circumstances. If so please don’t hesitate to contact us.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Sergeant 953 Jim Kroczak on 101 and follow the instructions to leave a message for an officer.
