A Colorado couple is trying to track down luggage that was stolen from them while they were staying at a hotel in Wichita.

They say the items stolen are priceless to them but worthless to anyone else.

The couple was driving home to Colorado from Texas, they had been on a cruise. They made to Wichita, when they say they had to stop for the night at a hotel in southeast Wichita.

When Marcia Honer and her husband checked into the hotel Sunday night, they say it was late and they were tired.

"All I could do was drag myself into the room and climb in bed. So we made the mistake of not getting everything out of our car,” Honer said.

When they checked out the next morning, Marcia says the window of their car was smashed and half of the luggage they left in the car was gone.

"Most of it was just souvenirs that we brought back for my kids and grand-kids and dirty laundry. But then we started realizing that there were several things taken that were absolutely irreplaceable and that's when it hit just how heartbreaking it really was,” Marcia Honer said.

Marcia says her father spent most of his retirement traveling around the world, snapping thousands of pictures of wildlife and nature. He died in August and Marcia says all of the pictures he took were stored on memory cards. Marcia had brought those memory cards with her on vacation.

"I told my sisters that I would take the time to organize them for them since most of them are still working and I don't even know how to tell them that they're gone,” Honer said.

With the exception of a few pictures, the only copies of the pictures Marcia's father spent the final years of his life taking were on the memory cards stolen Sunday night.

"They only have meaning to us, they don't mean anything to anyone else,” Honer said.

If you have any information on the luggage or memory cards stolen from the Honers, you're asked to call the Wichita police.
