A 23-year-old university graduate is offering a £1,000 reward in an attempt to be reunited with his lost laptop.
Jas Kalsi, of Bickington, lost the 13 inch Apple MacBook Pro on Wednesday evening in the Newport area of Barnstaple.
The university graduate said he was in a car in residential parking outside Hollowtree Court, just off Hughes Avenue, when his friend got out of the vehicle and placed the laptop on the roof of the car.
Jas, who plays cricket for North Devon and Filleigh, said he was unaware his friend had put the laptop on the car’s roof, while he removed his coat, and when his friend got back into the vehicle they drove off.
They failed to see or hear the laptop fall from the roof of the vehicle and only realised at a later stage that the laptop was missing.
Jas, who studied Music and Media at university, returned to Hollowtree Court later that evening and the following morning but couldn’t find the laptop.
He is now offering a cash reward for its safe return and says it has years of his work stored on it.
The aspiring vocalist and music producer, who is currently unemployed, said: “It would mean the world to me if someone could return it. It has everything on there.
“It has an unimaginable number of hours’ worth of music on there which I was working on for future projects and my future career. There’s at least three to five years’ worth of music on it.
“I was also writing a book which is stored on it. I just can’t put into words what it would mean if someone handed it in. I’d be eternally grateful.”
The laptop has a blue case on one side and a see-through case on the other and may be damaged from falling from the roof of the vehicle.
Jas is urging anyone who may have the laptop or know of its whereabouts to contact him on 07886338767.
