The Macclesfield Cemetery kerbstone which the council says draws around 1,000 Joy Division fans to the town each year from all over the world was taken last week from the Prestbury Road site, sparking a police investigation, and shock from Curtis' followers.
OUTRAGED Ian Curtis fans have joined Macclesfield Police in appealing for the return of his stolen memorial Nike Windrunner Jacket Red White
He said: "It's pretty disgusting really that it's been there for almost 30 years and somebody has decided to take it as a sick souvenir. It's upsetting for Ian's relatives, as it would be for anybody, and I can't see what worth it's got to anyone. I think it's a little bit sick and what on earth they hope to achieve I don't know. We've all been wild and reckless in our time but surely this represents a new low. It's probably a fan that has taken it and I would appeal for them to return it or leave it at the nearest police station."
The comments echo Stephen Morris, former Joy Divison and New Order drummer, who attended the King's School with Curtis. He labelled the theft "sick" and asked for the memorial to be taken to Macclesfield Police Station.

Stephen Morris, Curtis' former bandmate, spoke of the latest theft in Macclesfield.
The shocking incident at Macclesfield Cemetery, on Prestbury Road, echoes various thefts at Jim Morrison's grave in Paris. Pieces of The Doors frontman's memorial have been stolen from Pere Lachaise Cemetery over the decades. He died in the city in 1971, after a heart attack.
Insp Woods said: "We did raid an address in Winsford but did not find the stone. There is no CCTV in the area and there are no apparent leads at this time as to who is responsible for the theft. This is a very unusual theft and I am confident that someone locally will have knowledge about who is responsible or where the memorial stone is at present.
The memorial was taken between lunchtime on Monday, July 1, and the following morning.
