Sister Wants Stolen Momento of Her Deceased Brother Back

Updated: Monday, November 25 2013, 10:48 AM EST
COVINGTON, Ky. (WKRC) -- A lost momento has one local woman asking for your help after her late brother's MP3 player is stolen from her car. Megan McNeal says it was the one physical item of her brother's, that she kept since his passing. Local 12's Adam Clements has the story you'll only see on Local 12.

You might think it's just a small electronic device that plays music, no big deal. For Megan McNeal, this MP3 player was the one link she still had with her brother Guy. The two were on a hiking trip in New Mexico in 2011. Guy stepped to the edge of a cliff to take in the scenery when the rocks beneath him crumbled, sending him off the edge. He fell to his death and his sister, Megan, saw the whole thing.

It's taken her a long time to heal from that and she still misses her brother every single day. A part of her healing process was listening to the music Guy left behind on his MP3 player. The two shared a common love of music,  particularly indie rock.

Now, Megan's link to Guy is gone, stolen, when her car was broken into in front of her home in Covington. She says losing it is devastating and right now she really wants it back. "It made me sick to my stomach, I really did feel physically sick. You know, it's funny the attachment you can have to physical things. I know that's not my brother in that box but it was important to me"

Now this is actually a Microsoft Zune, a device that's not even manufactured anymore. Megan believes it would probably only be worth about twenty dollars, if that.  But she says the sentimental value of it to her is priceless and she hopes whoever took it  will return it.
