A DISTINCTIVE car with an unpublished manuscript in the boot was stolen from a supermarket car park.
The maroon Ford Escort Cabriolet was taken from the Co-op car park in Holmfirth at around 3pm on Tuesday.
It belongs to Pamela McKellar, from Holmfirth.
Her late husband, Prof Peter McKellar, had written the manuscript called The Psychologist In Literature.
It was in a suitcase in the boot and Mrs McKellar is anxious to get both the car and the manuscript back.
Psychology expert Prof McKellar, who died a few years ago, had written five books and worked at the University of Otago at Dunedin in New Zealand.
Mrs McKellar said: “The manuscript is of great sentimental value to me and I’d dearly love to get it back.”
The car’s registration number is K505 HEV.
