Sixteen-month-old Elliot, who has a rare chromosome disorder, lost his blanket ‘taggie’ in town on Monday, January 23.

His mum Vikki Mason reckons the blanket was lost around town or in the shops she visited including, Sainsbury’s, Newlook, M&S, and McDonald’s.

Vikki looked around town as soon as she noticed it was missing and asked in the shops but it was nowhere to be found.

Vikki said: “I’m gutted. I clip it onto his dummy clip so we never loose it. I don’t know how it’s come off but it did.

“I can buy another but this one goes to theatre with him and he’s back at GOSH for urgent surgery again as soon as his chest clears as he has pneumonia again.”

If you have found or know where the blanket is please contact Vikki by emailing Ebonysmummy@hotmail.co.uk
