CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) — An urn containing the ashes of a dead woman is missing and police are trying to get it back.

Tammy Hamati tells KTVK-TV (http://bit.ly/rLo2hD ) in Phoenix that she left the urn inside a backpack in her car Tuesday when she went to dinner in neighboring Chandler.

She returned to discover her car window pulled down, her stereo ripped out and the backpack and urn missing.

The urn is silver, shaped like a heart and has three flying doves. It weighs about 2 pounds.
