GRAPEVINE, Texas (NBC/KRIS) - "Flip" -- the Kemp's Ridley sea turtle that was being rehabilitated in Grapevine, Texas, -- was released back into the Gulf of Mexico.
Flip's journey started in Holland about this time last year where she was found on the shore, injured and dying. The prospects of her survival were dim, and how she got there is still a mystery.
A year later, Flip was ready to go back into the wild -- but not without a stop in North Texas first. She made a 5,000-mile, 10-hour trip from Holland to vets at the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine.
Flip was released Friday morning along the beaches near Port Aransas. Scientists placed a GPS tracking device on her to track her progress.
A camera mounted on a tow truck caught an example of a common incident Tuesday: a vehicle sliding off the road.
Officers from multiple law enforcement agencies worked together Tuesday evening to chase down an alleged van thief, despite slippery roads.
A charity lodge where three people were killed back in September 2013 will likely never open again.
