ORLANDO, Fla. - An Orange County woman is pleading with thieves to return the ashes of her infant son.
Police are hoping surveillance video will help them catch a thief who took off with a Mia Parker's SUV that contained most of her belongings and an urn with her child's ashes.
"My ID, Social Security card, everything. I had clothes, I had a laptop, everything," said Parker
Parker said she was left with only the clothes on her back after her Lexus SUV was stolen from the front parking lot of her friend's apartment building in the Metro Place community on South Kirkman Road Thursday.
"It was 12 o'clock, 12:30 in the afternoon. There was no one walking in the parking lot. It happened so fast," said Parker.
Parker said she parked her vehicle here with the keys still in the ignition. She said she got out to get a friend to go to a doctor's appointment. According to Parker in less than five minutes someone jumped into her SUV and fled.
"I just went right there and turned around and that fast, he opened the door and got in," Parker said.
What that thief didn't know was that along with Parker's personal items were the ashes of her 6-month-old son who died a few years earlier.
"My son's ashes, my son's urn is just priceless, I can't get that back and that is my only child," said Parker.
"Just please return the urn. We are talking about a human life that is ashes. My son, my baby
