A reward is growing for the return of a family's stolen smartphone.

The Seneca family first shared their story with 7 Eyewitness News Monday night at 11.

They're pleading for the return of their phone which contains photos and videos of their terminally ill newborn, Diana.

The family says the phone disappeared while they were in a lounge at Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo.

Now, Dwyer's Pub on Webster Street in North Tonawanda is stepping in, offering a reward in hopes the phone will be returned to its rightful owners. 

At last check, the reward has grown to more than $1,200. 

Donations can be made at the pub located at 65 Webster Street in North Tonawanda, 716-692-4837. 

If you have the phone, the pub's owner says you can drop it off at the pub, no questions asked, and claim the reward.
