Earlier this week the toddler’s family buried their little boy. A collection was set up to raise money for a charity which supports children with liver disease.

After the ceremony someone entered the church and took the money.

The family issued a statement on Facebook, saying the theft has hit them hard.

The head of the Parish Council, Marianne Aguilera, says she can hardly believe it – but thinks the thief has inside knowledge of the church as they entered through a normally closed passageway.

Graubünden cantonal police say they’re investigating.
