EARLIER: The hunt is on for the heartless thieves who broke into a home at Upper Coomera stealing the ashes of twin baby girls.
Donna Tweed took to social media on Wednesday after finding her Bedroff Street property had been ransacked, with a number of other possessions stolen including a laptop, car keys and a wedding ring.
The 50-year-old commented on the Coomera Community Page on Facebook to plead with the thieves to return a silver trinket box that carried the remains of her baby daughters.
"If you are reading this I am an absolute mess as that is all I have of my babies,” wrote Ms Tweed.
"Please, please can you return the ashes that are in the trinket box.
"Keep everything else but please return my babies."
