An Arizona mother is asking thieves to return her baby's ashes stolen during a burglary.

KSAZ-TV reports that the Phoenix apartment of Alyssa Ruiz was ransacked Saturday as burglars stole a laptop, a television and other items. Ruiz says she also found the silver keepsake box containing her baby's ashes open and upside down.

The ashes of Matthew Isaiah Hernandez, which were in a sealed bag, were gone.

Ruiz says she cremated her child after his death because she had no money for a burial. She's hoping the thieves return the bag and she promises to ask no questions.

No arrests have been made. Phoenix Sgt. Vince Lewis says a report of the burglary was taken and the investigation is ongoing

Next month marks the eighth anniversary of her son's death.
