An Australian family are desperately searching for their cellphone, which contains photos of their 11-month-old daughter.

Jay Windross and his wife, Dee, were in Melbourne's Chadstone shopping centre recently when Dee accidentally left her Samsung Galaxy S8 in a toilet cubicle, the Daily Mail reports.

The phone was filled with irreplaceable pictures and videos of their little daughter, Amiyah, who's terminally ill.

According to, the grieving parents have pleaded several times with the public on social media, asking for help in retrieving the stolen phone as the pair keep a bedside vigil for their gravely ill daughter.

"I haven't had my phone handed back and am still looking for it and the memories it holds," Dee wrote after posts emerged claiming her phone had been found.

"We've also tried multiple ways of backups to retrieve the photos. None have worked.

"We've taken every avenue. We've spoken with police and Chadstone shopping centre, but still nothing."

The couple have asked people to contact them directly or drop the phone off at the reception of the Monash Children's Hospital, where their daughter is in intensive care.

Amiyah has been in and out of intensive care since she was born, suffering from an unknown condition that's left doctors baffled.

"She spent her first week of life in special care," Jay said.

"She's about 330 days old, and she's spent nearly 200 of those in hospital. Nobody knows what's wrong with her."
