The West Midlands Police Department issued a statement
and photograph of the missing document on Friday, writing, “Police have issued an appeal after a rare Harry Potter
prequel, handwritten by the author J K Rowling, was stolen during a burglary in Kings Heath. The story, penned personally by Rowling over two sides of an A5 postcard is extremely valuable.”
The burglary occurred in late April, but police have been unable to apprehend any suspects or recover the stolen document. They believe that appealing to Potter fans will help move the case forward.
Investigating Officer PC Paul Jauncey said in a statement: "The only people who will buy this unique piece are true Harry Potter
fans. We are appealing to anyone who sees, or is offered this item for sale, to contact police."
