Previously, the teenager’s speaker was returned to the family after it was handed in at Staveley Police Station.

Stacey has repeated her appeal for anyone who has any information about the last of the treasured belongings – a Nike bum bag – to do the right thing and return it to her.

She said Logan ‘never went anywhere’ without the bag and that is why it means ‘so much to her’.

She urged anyone who can help to message her directly or return the items to neighbours’ homes.

This Nike bag is one of Logan Folger's belongings his mum has pleaded is returned.

"You could also hand things in to Staveley or Chesterfield police stations and they will bring them to me,” Stacey said.

Fourteen-year-old Logan died at Sheffield Children’s Hospital after being rescued from the river by emergency teams.

The opening of Logan’s inquest heard he was trying to save one of his friends from the water when they got into difficulty.

Stacey says the items have huge sentimental value for the family.

"No judgement will be made, no names will be mentioned,” Stacey added.

"I just need my boy’s beloved belongings back."
