Dad makes plea for return of stolen momentos of dead son

A grieving dad has pleaded for thieves to “have a heart” and return momentos of his dead son.

Mark Holden took to facebook to explain how his car was broken into at Manchester Airport on January 20.

Thieves stole two cushions (pictured below) that had been handmade from T-shirts that belonged to his son Jay (23) who died in 2022.

In his social media post that has been shared thousands of times, Mr Holden explained that he took comfort from driving with the cushions in his car.

He said: “They made me feel close to Jay. I am currently feeling distraught and absolutely disgusted that some people can be so evil.”

Other items including glasses and another car key were also taken from the car.

Greater Manchester Police investigated and said that no suspect could be identified but would re-open the case if any information came to light.

A Manchester Airport spokesman said he was saddened to hear of the “appalling theft”, adding that they take security seriously at the car park, with extensive CCTV and staff on patrol.

Anyone who has information about the cushions, can contact police on 101.
