Appeal to find missing purse

Have your say

A WOMAN has issued a plea to help find the purse she lost in Sheffield city centre.

Valerie Harley, of Handsworth, was devastated after a wallet with cash belonging to her elderly mother went missing on April 22, somewhere between Marks and Spencer in Fargate and the Cancer Research UK shop in Pinstone Street.

She contacted The Star to issue a public appeal, in the hope the purse will be returned. It has not been handed in to police.

Valerie said: “I just hope someone will have a heart and give it back. The money was not mine but my 95-year-old mother’s. I’d gone out to do her shopping.”
