Fresh Appeal from Moderator for Return of Missing Ring and Cross

 

 

THE Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland has made a second appeal for the return of the ceremonial ring and cross, which went missing at Edinburgh Airport in April.

The Rt Rev Albert Bogle, who steps down as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland later this month, said the return of the Moderatorial artefacts would be "the best handover I could give to my successor". They were, he said "an important, vital and visual part of not just the history of the Kirk, but the history of Scotland."

Thanking Police Scotland for their assistance in investigating the disappearance, he added: “I’d urge the person who took the items, or anyone who may have been offered them, to look into their conscience and return them, you know it is the right thing to do. Your own peace of mind is worth more than any money you may have been offered for them."

The jewellery, which is worn by every Moderator of the Church of Scotland during their year of office, disappeared as Mr Bogle returned from a flight overseas. A reward has been offered for the safe return of the artefacts.

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Police Scotland on 101 or visit their nearest Police office, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
