A school librarian is hoping someone has seen her pink laptop after it was stolen from her while she was walking on the dikes in Pitt Meadows. The laptop contained four years of work on Susan Henderson’s master’s thesis. The computer is a Dell laptop and it was in a red messenger bag. Henderson is in her last year of graduate studies in Library & Archival Studies at UBC specializing in children’s literature. Her car was broken into almost two weeks ago on Sunday afternoon while I was walking along the Pitt River in Pitt Meadows.
“It was raining and I decided I wasn’t going to want to go for a walk after I finished working on my thesis any more than I did at 11 a.m. so, I left my laptop in my trunk and walked until I was soaked to my socks-but ready to write,” she said. “But in that time, someone used a slim-jim, broke in, popped my trunk and took my old, Pink Dell laptop computer in a red messenger bag.”
As a library person, she said she should have known to have all her stuff backed up but she didn’t. Her laptop is rarely out of her sight.
All her research, course work and her thesis are all gone, which represents four years of work.
“I am desperate to get it back,” she said, adding that she has left posters around the area.
“I’d happily give a reward if I could get the contents of my laptop back,” she said.
If anyone finds the laptop or has information about it, they can call Henderson at 604-910-3625.
