A soldier deployed in Afghanistan has reached out to Facebook followers hoping to recover his four-wheel-drive Ford F-250 SuperCab which was stolen Tuesday from his parents’ home in Arvada, Colo.
U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class James Neily got the bad news from his wife through a FaceTime chat. He quickly made a plea for the truck’s return on Facebook.
“My truck was stolen in Arvada last night,” Neily wrote. “F250 blue and gray with blue Colorado honorably discharged plates 602NWN. Its lifted with 33-inch tires. A piece of the bug guard is broken off on drivers side of hood and has large front light bar on the bumper. I am currently deployed and someone thought they needed it more than me. I disagree so please help me find it. Thanks.”
Neily’s wife, Kayleigh Neily, told Fox 31 Denver how disappointing the theft is for the entire family, including their young son, who had just been playing in the truck the day before it was taken. Kayleigh Neily is hoping that the truck will be returned.
“We would like to have it back before he gets home,” she said.
