In the Onsted area, which is southeast of Jackson, a woman is heartbroken after priceless images of her family were stolen off a front porch. The thousands of carousel slides were in banker boxes. The woman was trying to get the slides digitized before they were stolen last week.

The woman's mother and father died a year and a half ago and the slides are the only physical memories she has of family trips and precious moments throughout the years.

The slides are worthless to the thieves and the owner wants them back. She says they can be dropped off at a church or any other location, no questions asked.

if you see the boxes or slides, please call the Cambridge Township Police Department.
