A woman is seeking the public's assistance in locating her iPhone, that had the last photos of her mother, that passed away recently on vacation, on it.
On August 10, 2012 at 1:45 pm in the parking lot of Academy department store in the 3000 block of Louisiana Avenue, Donna Menard's cellphone allegedly fell from the her purse and landed on the running board of the vehicle.
A man alerted Menard she had dropped her phone and as she walked to retrieve it an unknown woman alleged snatched the phone and fled.
"I have her playing the piano and several recordings on the phone. I have begged and pleaded with the suspect by sending text messages asking if she could drop the phone off at a location and let me know where she would leave it. I have offered her money or anything to get the phone back," says Menard.
If anyone has any information on a small Silver/Tan car leaving the area on that day contact the Lafayette Police Department, case #12-254958.
Donna Menard 337-442-6145 (8-4) or 337-962-1437 or 337-845-4633.
