The picture on the cover of a treasured photo album stolen from a Whalley doorstep

Personal treasure stolen from Whalley doorstep

Kelowna woman pleads for return of stolen photo album

A precious photo album containing pictures of a Whalley woman’s deceased twin sister was stolen from a her doorstep in March.

The woman’s mother, June Turner, spent more than a year amassing prized pictures of her two daughters, one of whom died last year.

Since then, Turner has been building a photo album to give to the surviving twin.

It was sent by FedEx and was left on a Whalley doorstep between March 28 and March 30.

Someone stole the album and Turner is desperate to get it back to her 49-year-old daughter.

It has no value to whoever stole it, she said in an interview from Kelowna on Thursday.

Turner said she understands how someone found themselves taking it.

“You were probably really curious as to what was in there and thought it was some use to you, but it only means a lot to the person it was sent to,” Turner said. “It’s her life story in pictures.”

She is pleading with whoever took it to get it back, either by dropping it off at Fed-Ex or the Whalley District Policing station.

She’s also asking the Surrey public to keep an eye out for a light blue photo album, with multiple coloured pastel flowers on it and a window on the front with a picture of a woman.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the album could call the RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call Crime

Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
