Family lamb stolen from van during game

PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE

PITTSBURGH -- Lost: A little lamb

Age: 10

Owner: Natalie Malone, 10, of Frankfort, Ill.

Description: "She was kind of made out of a wool material, she was very, very threadbare, she was squeezed like, to death, she had a blue-and-green ribbon around her neck. She was white, but now she's really dirty, and there's a hole in her and she's as skinny as a quarter because I squeezed her so much. And her nose is burned, brown, because when I was little I wanted her to smell a candle and her nose got burned."

Stolen suitcases

Lambie was in a suitcase stolen out of the Malones' van while the family was watching a Pirates baseball game. They were in town visiting friends.

The lot they wanted to park in was full, so they ended up in an alley. The back window of the van was bashed in and two small suitcases and an overnight bag were stolen. The thieves may have been interrupted, because other items, including cameras, were not taken.

Natalie's mother, Anita Malone, e-mailed the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after they returned to Illinois.

Anita Malone said she decided to write after talking to her daughter the previous night.

Natalie had slept with Lambie since she was 5 months old.

"About two times I forgot her when I went somewhere," Natalie said. "It was hard for me to sleep. It's hard when I don't have her. I miss her very, very much."
