The search is on for the woman who allegedly stole items from a little boy's gravesite in Richland County.

According to Ontario Police, several people have contacted them concerning gravesite thefts at Mansfield Memorial Park, whether it is flowers, wreaths or little toy tanks.

A couple of years ago, police were contacted by the parents of a 14-month-old baby boy, Hayden "Tank" Cole Sheridan, whom passed away in 2007. Since that time, someone has been stealing toys and solar night lights from the baby's gravesite.

Ontario Police set up a camera to catch the suspect, but never got a clear image that was good enough to identify the suspect until recently.

On April 19, approximately four to five hours after the family placed a yellow stuffed duck at little Tank's gravesite for Easter, a woman was captured on camera stealing it.

The family wants the person who did this to be held accountable. They do, however, realize that this person is probably not responsible for all of thefts from Baby Tank's gravesite.

Most of all, the family just wants assurance that they can leave a night light and a stuffed animal at their son's grave without someone stealing it.

Anyone who recognizes this person is urged to contact the Ontario Police Department at 419-529-2115.
