New Bedford Police are asking for the public's help as they try to find the owner of an iPhone that was found last week.

The phone was in a dark duffel bag which was found by a New Bedford Housing Authority employee who was cleaning an area near Gayhead Ct. and Potter St. last Friday.

Inside the bag the employee found a silver iPhone 6 and an iPad with a broken screen.

The items were locked and police were unable to open the items so they could identify an owner.

However, the iPhone had a photo of a child on its screen.

Anyone with information on these items is asked to call the New Bedford Police Detective Division at 508-992-7463, ext. 79501.
