Chesterfield mum's relief after some of schoolboy hero's stolen belongings returned
A grieving Chesterfield mum says she now has ‘more faith in humanity’ after some of her hero son’s precious belongings were returned.
Stacey Bentley made an emotional appeal for items belonging to her son Logan Folger, who tragically died in the water at Staveley, to be handed in to the family.
They were taken from the river bank after the accident on August 18.
Now Stacey has thanked the individual who handed in Logan’s speaker to Staveley Police Station and which has been returned to her.
“Thank you so much to whoever it was,” Stacey posted on Facebook.
"This gives me more faith in humanity! Please help me find the rest of his things and keep sharing.
"You could also hand them in to Staveley or Chesterfield police stations and they will bring them to me.”
Other missing items include Logan's grey Nike bum bag and his little brother’s faded ‘ICON’ cap.
Fourteen-year-old Logan Folger died at Sheffield Children’s Hospital after being rescued from the River Rother, close to the Chesterfield Canal, 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.
“Logan loved both of these things and barely went anywhere without them," she added.
"So I'm begging if anyone either taken them or has since brought them please please could I have them back as they mean so much to me and us as a family.
"No judgement will be made, no names will be mentioned. I just need my boy’s beloved belongings back."
