But as he packed his suitcase into his car he put his phone on his roof - only to drive off without realising.

The phone has sentimental photos and data on its SD card and he’s offering a £300 reward to anyone who can return it.

He said: “I am appealing to anyone that may have seen it to please hand it in to the Corby Police Station.

“The chances are that it fell off somewhere on Steyning Close, Tower Hill, or even Gainsborough Road.

“If the phone has been damaged from the fall, I don’t care, I need to recover my SD card and sim card containing sentimental photos and data.

“I will offer a reward of £300 for the return of the phone irrespective of the condition.”

Mr Ontong’s phone is a new gold Samsung S7 Edge with a gold flip cover.

If you find it, please hand it in to Corby Police station.
