Police are appealing for information from the public after a memorial lantern was believed to have been stolen in Warrington.
At around 10am on Saturday 16 September, it was reported that a memorial lantern placed along the Trans Pennine Trail in Latchford had been stolen earlier that week.
The tribute was tied to a tree at 6pm on Wednesday 13 September, but when the caller returned at 10pm that evening, the lantern was no longer in place, and it is believed it was stolen during that time.
Police are keen to speak to anyone with information about the incident.
Sergeant Gareth Kerr said:
“This item was of immense sentimental value and was left in the location as a tribute.
“We are keen to hear from anyone who may have information as to the whereabouts of the memorial lantern. The same goes for anyone who may have any footage which could aid our enquiries.
“You can report information by calling 101 or visiting our website via cheshire.police.uk/tell-us, quoting 23000887979.”
