A York mother's plea was answered Monday when a memory card containing pictures of her deceased baby boy was returned.
Friday, Patricia Harris left her car unlocked for a few minutes on South Richland Avenue.
When she came back outside to get her purse from her car, she discovered it had been stolen.
"And then I just lost it. I wrote a note with black crayon that said 'keep the tablet and phone but please return the memory card. It has pictures of my son. He died on February 22. He was two and a half months old,' she explains of losing her baby to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
She plastered Richland with flyers pleading for the card's return.
"It's like I'm losing him all over again. I want them back," she said through tears Monday afternoon.
By late Monday afternoon, the card was back.
Someone returned it to her car. It was hanging from her visor.
Harris said she couldn't wait to look at the pictures again.
She says someone tried to use a stolen credit card from her purse at a nearby store, and police are looking into it.
She's just happy to have her memory card back, and says she doesn't care about getting her other items back.
