A DISTRAUGHT mother has pleaded with thieves to return precious pictures of her baby.
Jane Pass and her partner Duane Clark have taken more than 300 pictures of little William since he was born four months ago.
But the memory card containing the images was stolen when thieves took a Canon IXUS 430 digital camera from their home in Birkby.
The couple had also downloaded the pictures to their laptop computer - but that was also taken by the intruders.
"All the pictures we have taken since William was born are on the camera," said Jane.
"We took some more on Sunday because it was my first Mother's Day.
"We downloaded them on to the computer, but we have been so busy that we haven't had time to get any of the pictures printed.
"It is very upsetting. These pictures are very precious and we just want to get them back."
Jane said the burglary took place on Sunday evening while she was upstairs feeding William.
Duane was also in the house when the intruders got in through the unlocked back door.
"They must have been disturbed when they heard Duane moving about upstairs," said Jane.
"You don't think you need to lock the door when you are about the house.
"I dread to think what might have happened if I had come down and discovered them."
Jane said: "I just want the camera's memory card back. I hope whoever took it can get it to the police somehow."
