Missing Necklace: “Five Crystal Cross Cremation Jewelry”

The family of a young boy who was killed in plane crash near Waskada last year has been dealt yet another blow.

On July 18, Edmonton police responded to an attempted theft of a vehicle. After trying to steal a truck, the thief made off with a small amount of money and a necklace.

The stolen necklace is a cremation pendant and holds the ashes of Dawson Pentecost, who died in a plane crash with three others — Darren Spence, 37, and his two sons, 10-year-old Gage and nine-year-old Logan — on Feb. 10, 2013.

The Pentecost family recently moved back to Alberta, after spending a number of years in Waskada.

"It’s very likely that the thief had no idea about the tremendous sentimental value of this piece of jewelry," says Const. Michael Roblin of Downtown Division. "The (Edmonton Police Service) asks the public to keep an eye out for this keepsake necklace and anyone with information about the incident is asked to come forward. It is our hope the necklace will be recovered and returned to its rightful owners, even if it is turned in anonymously."

The suspect is described as a white man in his late teens or early twenties, with blonde, curly hair. He was last seen wearing red and white shorts.

Anyone who has information about this crime is asked to contact Edmonton police at 780-423-4567.
