Priceless memories stolen during a break-in.
Now a Maui woman, who just got married, is pleading for the return of the camera and memory card.
It’s a day every girl dreams of, for Keisha Pagdilao-Moss, it meant flying home to Maui to marry her college sweetheart Jordan Moss—at the same place her parents met 30 years ago.
“It was a beautiful day we had a lot of blessings, spent a lot of time with family and friends and had a great, great night,” Pagdilao-Moss said. “Unfortunately, on Sunday, Aug. 5, my cousins car got broken into at the Maui Mall.”
Pagdilao-Moss said it happened between 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. Her cousin went inside to grab dinner, when they got back to their rental car, their debit cards, IDs, and the camera with all the wedding footage was gone.
The newlyweds were already back on Oahu when they got the phone call.
“We were driving and we stopped and our hearts dropped, instantly we thought of moments from our wedding that we won’t be able to witness or watch again,” Pagdilao-Moss said.
“The unfortunate event caused a lot of heartbreak because we want to witness and review our special night and maybe one day show our children,” she added.
All the couple has now are photos.
The bride said she did a special hula for her now-husband. “He always wanted me to do one on our wedding day,” she said. That video was also on the stolen camera.
Pagdilao-Moss says it’s not about the camera, but mostly about those memories that can’t be replaced. She’s pleading that if anyone at Maui Mall saw something, to say something.
“I know living in Hawaii is hard and money can be tight,” she said. “There can be certain circumstances or situations that brought you to that moment or to that reason why you stole from our family and from us.
“If you could find it in your heart, that it wasn’t just an electronic, it wasn’t just a camera it was memories, it was moments of our special day of happy times with family and friends and if you could just find it in your heart to realize it’s more than that and send it in, return it, do the right thing,” she plead.
The camera stolen was a black Nikon D5300, the car was a black Chevy Sonic, if anyone has any information, contact Maui police.
