Have you seen Ned Kelly?
When Alison James realised her unique and quirky Ned Kelly letterbox (pictured) had been stolen from her property on Rifle Range Road near Alstonville recently, she was devastated.
Ned was a house warming gift made by my dad who runs a car smash repair business in Canberra, Alison said. It was a one-off with many hours of intricate work going into Neds design and creation, which made him irreplaceable to me and my partner.
Alison says over the past three years many a passer-by has stopped so their kids can have their photos taken with Ned.
One of those kids is so upset she has offered to help her dad make us a new one, which was absolutely lovely, but we really want our original Ned back, Alison said. We have reported the theft to police but we would also like our local community to be on the look out for Ned. We dont want to press charges, we just want him dropped off somewhere public so he can be returned.
Anyone with information should contact Alstonville Police on 6628 0244.
