Bailey has since posted to a Facebook group called “Kingston Sell it, Buy it, Trade it” asking for the public’s help in finding his artwork, which holds sentimental value to her and her family.

“I thought it was likely that there was more stuff out there that people probably either stuck it in the attic… Or that they had come across it at a thrift store and didn’t know what it was.”
