Stolen RV and 2 pets

I'm not sure if this is OK to do. I just read on Facebook this lady was taking her RV for a check up before taking a trip to see her new grandchild. Two friends Dustin Nash and Allison Eldred were following her in her RV . As she turned to get on LA southbound entrance I-5 they didn't. By the time she could go down the freeway to turn around, they were long gone. This happened about aweek ago.
You can read about this at KATU.COM, "RV ripped off". It's a 23 foot Itasca with Washington license plate ANM9481. Anybody please help our RV family
This lady with her 3 children were living in this RV because she had just lost her home. So with money she had she bought this RV.

Here's a Link to the News Story.

That's awful!

I live in Washington and I'll sure keep my eyes peeled...

I hope this lady gets everything back. It is a heartbreaking story. I hope that pair is dealt with severely when caught.

Sad story, wonder why she wasn't driving the MH instead of the SUV? I know I would have were it all my possessions and house.

I was just wondering if there was an update on the stolen RV I reported on 12/1/2013. So, I Google it and sure enough 6 days ago they got them. It does not say anything about the RV. There is allot of info on this so if you would like read about it google "Dustin Nash " or "Allison Eldred " and there is lots there. From Drugs , stolen cars, Manufacturing drugs , methamphetamines ( I hope I spell that right). They had to chase her down in a stolen car . She was doing 75 mph in a 55 mph zone. . These are some bad people. I hope they get this lady her RV back. There lots to read.

When cell phones were bricks and before the internet, My parents had health issues and loved to boondock in remote areas. I got the idea from watching ADAM 12 on TV seeing numbers painted on the car's roof. Being a soldier at home on leave, I affixed orange and silver reflective tape to the top of their RV two air conditioner covers [resembling marker panels] So from the sky Air Medical Helicopters could more easily find and identify them in day or night.
Marking the roof of your RV with a symbol or number can be used to easily identify your RV from the sky when parked among other RV or traveling down the highway if ever stolen.

That's a good idea.

I'm not far from the area where the RV was stolen. It's good to know the crooks have been caught and I hope the RV is found and is still habitable. Another moral to this story is -- choose your friends carefully. These 2 were bad news before stealing the RV.
