Florida woman’s stolen RV found

But as luck would have it, she got her stolen RV back early Wednesday morning – and the treasured mementos from the 45 years she spent with her husband who had recently died, reported Fox31.

“It means a lot to us. It may just be monetary to them, but it’s heart to me,” said Piers.

The two had planned to retire and travel the country in an RV together. Now Piers is continuing that dream on her own.

“It seems like it’s part of me. Especially after three years. I have done over 40,000 miles on my RV. I have gone ocean-to-ocean twice,” said Piers.

Inside the RV is Piers’ wedding ring as well as a walking stick that matched her husband’s that the two took on all their hikes together for more than 40 years.

The bright red 2015 Winnebago Travato was found late Tuesday night and Piers got it back about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Looks like an APB, be on the lookout for a fire engine red camper
was the trick!

Barney Phiffe would be able to find it, ya think!

That was very good luck!

Every once in a while it works out that way. A few years ago, my father in law was borrowing our Chevy Conversion Van while his pickup truck was being repaired.

While he was at the local VA medical center, the van was stolen. In this case, he did put the keys under the seat, and left the door unlocked..however, in his defense, we live in a small rural area and I’ve been guilty of exactly the same thing. Someone must have seen him do it, as his sign-in/sign-out in the VA office showed he was only in there maybe 10-12 minutes.

I was fully prepared to either never see the van again, or get a call from the police finding it had been burned out in the desert somewhere. But was surprised with the actual result. Later the same day, the police called and said they’d found the van, and asked for permission to take fingerprints. I told them sure! And went to pick up the van. It was parked in a neighborhood only a few miles away from my house, the keys were in the van, and every single thing that was in the van when it was taken was still there..GPS, tools, a spare can of gasoline…Even a few bucks cash money in the center console, laying right there in the open. There was no damage.

I don’t expect, if there’s a “next time”, it will turn out so well.

How was it stolen? Was the key left in the RV. Did they find out who took it.

Sorry, Dave. The only reports I can find say that the woman made sure she locked the RV when she left it parked in front of her son’s home, and that it was found late Tuesday night. No mention if they caught who stole it or how they did it. —Diane at
