Stolen Camera

I'm looking for any help people can give with this.

I was holiday last week when my wife and I visited Tossa de Mar on Thursday, 6th June 2019.

We parked in the Parking Platja Gran Empark on the Promenade at about 11.30 am.

I put my camera into the car boot and then I went to the public toilet whilst my wife sat on the edge of the open boot of our hire car.

We then locked the car and went onto the beach and returned soon after 3 pm.

I opened the boot of the car to discover my camera had disappeared.  This was initially a mystery to us as the camera had been out of sight in a locked car boot.

My wife then remembered that whilst she was sitting on the edge of the open car boot before we went to the beach she had been shouted at by a man leaning on a car two cars away from ours.  My wife had turned her head and said that she did not understand Spanish and then in English he asked if we had a car park ticket and my wife said we had.  He then said okay and went away.

We can only assume that this was a distraction tactic and that whilst my wife's head was turned for a matter of only seconds that someone had very quietly and quickly approached from her other side and deftly stolen the camera from the boot.

The camera is a black Canon EOS 600D digital single lens reflex camera. 

The body number (from the original box) is 5170B006(BA).

There was a detachable EF-S 18-55 IS II zoom lens on the camera with an Ultra violet filter and black lens cap.

The camera contained a 32GB memory card containing over 800 photographs taken on our week's holiday.

The camera also contained a non-Canon battery.

The lens hood was a black plastic rectangular one which had some plastic tape over a crack.

The long strap was brown leather with my initials "MFK" thereupon.

Whilst the cost of the camera is obviously significant, the main loss to me are the photographs as I am a keen photographer and took many irreplaceable pictures which I was looking forward editing, collating, adding to various collections and putting into albums etc.

As we returned home the following day I have reported the theft online to the police and forwarded signed copied to them.

However, any help anyone can give would be much appreciated.
