St Helier mum appeals for help after losing iPod in Cheam containing precious memories of her father
A mum is appealing for help after losing an iPod which contained precious video messages from her father before he died.
Adele Gregory, 41, from St Helier, was left devastated after the death of her father Brian David Hobbs, 73, on Tuesday, September 10, following a battle with lung cancer.

Just before his death the family visited Village Charcoal Grill, in Cheam, where Mrs Gregory’s son, Levy, 16, lost his iPod containing messages from his grandfather to him and his sister Tayla-Jaye, 18.
The family do not care about the return of the iPod but if someone has found it they long to have the photographs and videos of Mr Hobbs before he died.
Mrs Gregory, who runs Ambition Dance and Drama Troop, said her family, who are Romany Gypsies, were “gutted” by the loss of her father who she described as a gentleman.
Mrs Gregory said: “It is not about the iPod – we just want the downloads. I will even give them a £100 reward.
“The machine doesn’t mean anything to me. If someone just wants to send over the downloads by computer they never have to see me.
“My dad was a gentleman and he made sure he left us as many messages and stories as he could.
“He fought cancer and he fought it for 20 months nursed at home. He stood up to the day he died. He wasn’t afraid – he was such a proud man.
“The videos he put on there were for the kids to tell them to stand up and fight – let nothing defeat you in life. My dad loved the kids. He was so well loved. I miss him so much.
“Levy has got himself upset – we are just sharing the photos that we have got.”

They think the iPod Touch 4th Generation might have been lost in the Village Charcoal Grill or lost on the way out.
The restaurant put up a notice in the window but nothing has been found yet.
