A family is asking for the safe return of a stolen hard drive containing pictures and video of their child, who passed away in 2008.
Durham Regional Police say that someone stole the external hard drive, along with a 52-inch LCD TV, a Panasonic video camera and two 17-inch Acer laptops from a home on Beckett Crescent in Courtice, which is just east of Oshawa.
The theft occurred in the early morning hours on Monday, police say.
The most important item for the family is the one-terabyte hard drive that was attached to one of the laptops.
It contains the irreplaceable videos and pictures of the deceased child.
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime to call police at 1-888-579-1520 extension 1736, or to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
