Appeal For Return Of Irreplaceable Photos

The aunt of a terminally ill 6-year-old boy says she's devastated after her iPhone full of memories of her nephew was stolen.

At 12 midday on Sunday 17th at McDonalds drive through in Christchurch, her iPhone was taken after it had dropped on the floor, in a matter of 40 seconds. 
The car was a small metallic green Aziz and the two people involved were a petite dark-haired lady carrying a laptop and an armful of folders. She was with her 11-year-old daughter.

The little girl had got into the car but was struggling to put the seatbelt on and her mother dropped her phone while she helped  to strap her in, after she had done this the, phone had gone it.
She is the aunt of a terminally ill little boy, and on the iPhone are memories of the last 9 months.

The family say they can't be replaced, and the phone was a gift from her sister to record them.

This is the message from the family:

"If anyone has any information about this, or knows someone who has suddenly acquired an iPhone in the area, please we ask you this:

"Even if you do no not return the iPhone, please if you have the technical knowledge please download the content onto a disk and send it into the Heart office.You can do this anonymously and no further action will be taken."
We are protecting the identity of the family because they have not told the little boy he is terminally ill and they wish his final months to be as positive as possible.
