THE HUNT is still on to find a Bromsgrove artist and war veteran’s sketch book which went missing while she was on her way to her course in Worcester.

The Standard reported last week how the book in an Asda bag was lost on January 12 but no-one has come forward to say it has been found.

On that day, Mrs Holloway had travelled on the 144 from Bromsgrove, through Droitwich, to Worcester and it was when she was outside The Hive that an elderly woman pointed out bags on Mrs Holloway’s wheelchair were falling off. It was then she noticed it was gone.

The 17ins by 12ins metal spiralled black hard boarded book, bought from The Works, belongs to Wendy Holloway.

It has a distinctive ‘cut-out’ and 3D human eye design on the front and is full of sketches by Mrs Holloway as part of her Art and Design degree course at the University of Worcester.

One of the reasons she is on the course is as a way of coping with her Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) she was diagnosed with after being attacked. She fears she will not be able to pass her course if she does not get it back.

“I have done everything I can think of to try and get it back,” she added.

Anyone who may have seen the book or picked it up is urged to hand it into The University of Worcester.

Alternatively, call the university on 01905 855000 or The Standard on 01527 588657.
