GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A volunteer search and rescuer's equipment bag that had been stolen was anonymously returned.
The Kent County Volunteer Search and Rescue member's "24 Hour Ready Pack" was stolen from his private vehicle as he and his tracking dog searched for a missing woman in Cutlerville on the evening of Oct. 24. The fully-loaded pack contained about $300 in equipment, much of which had been purchased by the volunteer or given to him as gifts.
On Tuesday evening, Kent County Volunteer SAR said it had received an anonymous tip that led to the pack. It was recovered with everything still inside.
The group said it had received many donations to replace the stolen pack and equipment, according to its Facebook page. It is contacting donors to give them the option to take back their donations.
Anyone who would still like do donate to the group -- the members of which often buy their own equipment -- can do so at its website.
