A bride-to-be has expressed her devastation after her “priceless,” sentimental wedding ring given to her by her father was stolen in a burglary, last Friday.
Toni-Louise Cullinane returned to her home in Holbeck with her partner to find her house had been ransacked, with several precious items taken. But it is her father’s ring Miss Cullinane is so desperate to get back.
Miss Cullinane said: “It is not worth a lot but to me it’s completely priceless. When I got engaged to my partner last year, my Dad gave me this ring so I could wear it at my wedding next March. It is not just my memories that are attached to it, it’s got my Dad’s memories attached to it as well – the ring was given to him on his 21st birthday from his only sister.”
The ring is described as a man’s gold ring of quite a large size, with a plain band and a flat oval face, with the initials ‘RM’ inscribed. Detective Constable Neil Masheder, of Leeds District CID said: “We have been conducting house to house and CCTV enquiries following this burglary.”
