Hundreds of family photos on lost camera
A DISTRAUGHT couple have issued a plea to residents to help them find a camera with more than 1,000 family photos on it.
Parents Trish Doran and Ben Simnett lost their black Panasonic Lumix TZ60 while shopping in Macclesfield last week and have been frantically searching for it since they discovered it was missing on Thursday (February 4).
The camera’s memory card contains irreplaceable photos of their children Cara, 11 months, and Reuben, three.
Trish, 35, who lives on the Lark Hall Estate, said: “I’m absolutely gutted, I’ve been nearly in tears in the shops. The camera is worth about £200 but the memory card is more important. The photos cover the whole of Cara’s life, we can’t get that back.”
She added: “We didn’t back the photos up but on Thursday we decided to do it and that’s when I found the camera missing.
“I’ve had sleepless nights and feel sick.”
The couple think the camera, in a hard black Sandstrom case, may have fallen out of a bag between Clarks Shoes on Mill Street and Waters Green Medical Centre on Tuesday, February 2.
