A Middletown woman is desperately searching for her missing necklace because it contains part of her loved one's remains, and there is now a reward being offered for its return.

Elizabeth Short said that her late fiancé, Christopher Brooks, passed away in January. She had some of his ashes put inside a heart-shaped necklace that reads "I love you."

Short normally wears the necklace every day, but has not been able to since the heart portion of the necklace disappeared on July 3 at Smith Park in Middletown.

Short said she believes it may have fallen off, but it's not clear if someone took it after that.

"He was my love, my best friend, and I lost him, and now I feel like I really lost him," Short said. "I just want it back."

The Dayton Diggers have helped with the hunt by using metal detectors at the park.

Short said she filed a police report, but she just wants the necklace returned, no questions asked.

Some of Short's friends have come together to offer a reward. Right now, it is at $210 and counting.

If you have information on where the necklace might be, you're asked to contact Middletown Police or Short herself at (513) 571-4780.
