Alabama Mom Desperate for Stolen Necklace Containing Daughter’s Ashes
"Have a heart. Have some compassion, have some compassion for me and my family and just return it."
All of Molly Little's jewelry was stolen when thieves ransacked her family's home in Pike Road, Alabama earlier this month. Among them was an irreplaceable necklace containing her daughter's ashes.
"I just see these drawers right here under the TV, and things are taken out and they're just scattered everywhere," Little recalled to WSFA. "I looked up from here and I could see the window in my bedroom, and I could see the blinds were broken. That's when my heart started racing."
Her bedroom is where she keeps her jewelry.
"All of my jewelry is really sentimental, none of it had much value," she explained to the local news station. But there was one priceless piece mixed in the with the rest. "Autumn's necklace was in there," noted Little.
Autumn was Molly's daughter who only lived to be six weeks old. A twin, Autumn was born with a heart condition, and lost her young life after more than a dozen surgeries and procedures, WSFA reports. Autumn's sister, Hannah, is now a healthy five-year-old.
Little had a special key-shaped necklace made to keep Autumn's memory alive. Now she's desperate to get it back.

"That's part of my daughter out there somewhere, in the city, and I don't know where she's at," Little told WSFA. "They could have tried to take it to a pawn shop, and I bet they're going to tell them it's not worth anything, there's no point. And it breaks my heart because then I think the next thing they'll do is throw it away. But to me, it doesn't have a price tag. It's priceless. It's worth everything."
Little, who posted about the theft on Facebook, is hoping her story will be shared enough times that someone will recognize it and get it back to her.
She also has a message for anyone who comes across it. "Have a heart. Have some compassion, have some compassion for me and my family and just return it."
