The bag which contained a purse, a mobile phone, cash, a bank card and personal effects was left for a short time sometime between 4am and 7am on Monday 29 August as the girl returned home following a night out. Following leaving the handbag she quickly realised it was missing and returned to the location where she put it down, but it had disappeared.
Following an exchange with a group who she saw nearby, the mobile phone was returned to her but the bag and items have not as yet turned up.
