Highgate heartbreak 

A priceless memento: A daughter’s handprint engraved on a necklace was stolen in Highgate.

Mum’s desperate plea over stolen pendant

A HIGHGATE woman is pleading for the return of a stolen necklace that captured the handprint of her late daughter.

The woman, who asked not to be named, found her car broken into on the morning of June 22. Her black Guess wallet was stolen, and inside was a necklace pendant imprinted with her daughter Millie’s handprint.

She told us she doesn’t care about the other stolen items but the necklace is priceless.

“I’m absolutely devastated as I can’t get another copy of her handprint as she is deceased now.

“I’m heartbroken it’s gone – I’ve walked almost every street around here in hopes I find it.”

A number of residents in the suburb’s local Facebook community group have commented on an increase in car breaks and vehicle damage in the past year or so. The area’s snug blocks means few residences have room for garages which makes for a lot of vulnerable vehicles at night. 

If you have any information about the necklace leave a message with us at 9430 7727 or news@perthvoice.com and we’ll pass it on.
