A DISTRAUGHT woman is appealing for the return of a family heirloom she lost within days of having it presented to her.

Anita Guymer was given a necklace on New Year's Eve with a gold pendant attached, by her uncle, in memory of her aunt, who died seven years ago.

But only two days later, following a trip shopping with her daughter to Asda in Lowestoft, Mrs Guymer, of Church Road, Kessingland, noticed the chain had come undone and was hanging without the pendant.

She has retraced her steps every day since, but so far Lowestoft police and Asda have been unable to locate the piece of jewellery.

Now she is hoping to jog the memories of readers who may have seen the pendant, which was made into a hangman shape by lots of nine-carat gold balls.

She said: “My aunt and uncle had four boys and would have loved a daughter, so when my uncle put it round my neck and said I was the nearest to a daughter they had got, I felt very privileged.

“An item like this would mean nothing to anyone else, but to me it means an awful lot.”

Mrs Guymer said she nearly took the pendant off on the morning of January 2 because she was fearful of losing it, but because her uncle had put it on her, she felt she should not take it off, so went out shopping around 12.30pm.

But when she got home and got out of the car she noticed the chain dangling.

“I went straight back to Asda and hunted everywhere for it, but it wasn't there. I think I lost it between Asda check out and the car park,” she said.

“When my aunt died, it was such a bolt out of the blue for everybody and for a long time my uncle found it hard to speak about so I know it was a huge step for him to part with the necklace. I wish with all of my heart that this pendant can be returned to me.”

If you have seen the pendant or know where it is telephone 01502 525838.
