A WIDNES mum has been left devastated after losing her precious rings and is offering a reward for their return.
Jennifer Cogley took her three-year-old daughter, Olivia, for a swimming lesson on Sunday at Kingsway Leisure Centre in Widnes.
She took her rings off in the family changing room and left them on a bench as she helped her daughter to have a shower.
Jennifer, aged 30, of Birchfield Road, said: “We rushed out of the changing room as we had to be at a family meal. When I realised a short while afterwards that I had forgotten to pick them up, I called Kingsway. No one had handed them in to the police or leisure centre.
“The rings are of massive sentimental value. Craig and I have been together for 11 years and married seven years.
“I am devastated to have lost such personal items and would like to think that no one could purposely take items which are clearly so precious.
“I have personally been round all the pawnbrokers, jewellers and money cash for gold shops in Widnes and notified shops in Runcorn, St Helens, Warrington and Liverpool.
“I would just like them returned to me.”
Her husband, Craig, aged 37, added: “We were in a hurry going out for a meal for my mum’s birthday.
“These rings are something we can’t replace.
“We’re just hoping some children may have picked them up and put them in a swimming bag. Perhaps their parents could check.”
Jennifer had taken her daughter for a swimming lesson at 2pm on Sunday, March 2. She was in the changing room at around 2.30pm.
Anyone who finds the rings can call Jennifer on 07833 916996.
