A WATERFORD MAN has appealed for help in finding a necklace containing his deceased partner’s ashes.

A number of items were taken from Keith Nolan’s house on Wednesday evening and thieves stole a chain and capsule that contained the ashes of his partner Lorraine and the couple’s unborn third child.

Lorraine died when she was five months pregnant with the couple’s third child.

In a Facebook post that has been shared over 400 times in just a matter of hours, Keith says that he’s worried that it may have been thrown away.

I’m begging for everyone to share this post.This chain and capsule holding Lorraine’s and baby’s ashes was taken from my house last night cant say too much as the Gardai are involved.
What I’m afraid of if it was thrown somewhere. The one time I took it off me as I wear it everywhere. Its all I have left of her apart from the girls. If you know where it is or have found it can you please contact me. Please share this post mainly the Tramore area.

Anyone with information can contact Keith on Facebook.
