Fans of the聽Harry Potter聽series tend to hang on聽author JK Rowling鈥檚 every word. Through her very popular Twitter account, the author shares much of herself with fans (while also shutting down trolls聽on the reg), and often gives out little tidbits of聽HP聽information (like her huge聽Fantastic Beasts 2聽hint). Now, the brain behind everyone鈥檚 favorite boy wizard is actually begging people not to buy a story she wrote, and for good reason.

The story, recently auctioned to support a writers鈥 charity, was stolen from its new owner鈥檚 home in late April along with several items of jewelry. Written on a single six by eight inch postcard, it is a short prequel to the events from the聽Harry Potter聽series.

With no word on the rest of the investigation, both Rowling and the police department are asking for fans of the author to help track down the priceless work. As private Constable Paul Jauncy said, 鈥淭he only people who will buy this unique piece are true聽Harry Potter聽fans. We are appealing to anyone who sees, or is offered this item for sale, to contact police.鈥

Here鈥檚 to hoping the manuscript is returned to its rightful owner, and soon!
