Please help me find my holdall

On Sunday, May 28, I moved house. My husband, James Beeching, drive one of the vans on the day of the move.

During the journey (between Filsham Road and Harrow Lane) my husband realised the door had come open – looking around he couldn’t see anything so continued. We later realised some items fell out the van, one of which was a pink holdall which contained scarves and baby woven wraps which hold huge sentimental value to me.

We didn’t realise anything was missing until today and I was mortified to think I wouldn’t see my items again.

I remembered that I had an old address on the luggage tag, I knocked and the people living at that address informed me a man in a black 4x4, pick-up style car had tried to return the case to him but because he didn’t know who I was, he sent him away.

I am now desperately trying to find out who this man was, and if he still has my case and my precious baby wraps.

So I am hoping he, or his family, read your paper and may spot this letter to reunite me with my holdall.
