Mother asks for help to find missing bangle
A Woy Woy resident has lost a treasured bangle her son gave her just before he died and is asking for help to find it.
Ms Debbie Knox believes she lost her bangle when she bent down to pick up a box of tea bags at Woolworths in Peninsula Plaza shopping centre on the afternoon of Monday, September 23.
The bangle, worth about $3000, was in its original Prouds Jewellery bag.
Ms Knox believes the bangle fell out of her shoulder bag.
Ms Knox paid for her groceries and had packed them in her car when she suddenly realised the bag was not in her shoulder bag.
She spoke to store management and left her details there and also contacted the jewellery store.
Her son, Craig Knox, 45, died in Gosford Hospital on June 19 from cancer.
Before he died, he gave his mother the bangle.
Ms Knox said she wore the bangle but found it made her sad every time she looked at the bangle on her arm.
A friend suggested she take it off and keep it with her until such time as she felt she could wear it again.
She said that worked much better and she took it everywhere with her, inside her bag.
But now it has disappeared and she is devastated.
Ms Knox said she could afford to give a small reward.
"I'm hoping there is an honest person out there who will hand it in to the police, or Woolies or the jewellery shop,'' she said.
