Irreplaceable Treasure Lost, A Mother Pleads for Help
BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (Angela Ingram) -- Since Jeni Taggarts story hit social media websites like Facebook, the family has been overwhelmed with how many people have liked and shared the post.
Jenis hoping someone will find and recognize her locket, and return it.
When we had her they made molds of her hands and her feet and they cut a lock of her hair.
Jeni Taggart was heartbroken when her beautiful baby girl, Natalie Rae, was stillborn on her due date. In March of last year, after the baby was cremated, the family bought eight lockets. Each was filled with some of Natalies ashes and hair.
The locket, theres no way to mistake it. It has her name on the back of it. On the front, it says Always in my heart, and on the back it says, Natalie Rae Taggart.
In mid-December Jeni took off the locket to keep a baby she was holding from pulling at the chain. She put it in her jacket pocket for safekeeping. Jeni ran two errands that day at places where she thinks she may have dropped it.
It was there before I went to the Family Dollar and then it was gone by the time we got back here and I went to put it on and the UDF and Family Dollar are the only places where I got out of the car.
Since the media started reporting Jenis story, the response on social media has been huge. And for this mother who lost a most precious gift, it would mean the world if someone would return a piece of Natalie that Jeni kept close to her heart.
After Jeni lost the locket they searched the family van and their clothes and couldnt find it. They also called the UDF and Family Dollar to see if someone saw it. But so far, the workers havent been able to find it.
