POLICE are searching for the owner of a set of World War II medals found at Merewether and suspected to be stolen.
The medals were found in December during a search of a car in Ocean Street, Merewether.
Police said they suspect the medals are the proceeds of a break and enter, but have not been able to locate any record of them being reported as stolen.
‘‘The owner of the medals may not even be aware that they are missing,’’ police said.
The six medals include an Italy Star and Africa Star and are all for service during World War II.
Anyone with information about the medals, or who believes the medals may belong to them, can contact Waratah Police Station on 4926 6599.
