extensive coverage of the theft in the local media and online, I
believe that whoever took the trailer and car felt they had to

“Whilst the trailer and car are being returned to the owner, I
would still like to hear from anyone with information about the
theft. There remains a four-day period when the car and trailer
were missing, and someone must have information about where they
were being kept and the van that towed them away.”
