Trailer stolen from Wichita church parking lot


Gone without a trace.

A local church is left wondering who would hinder it’s mission of helping the less fortunate by stealing the one thing that helps them do just that.

“Our janitor came in and she asked me, is someone using the trailer?” says Paige Nelson.

For the most part, the East Heights United Methodist Church parking lot was empty this weekend.

“Very frustrating,” says Director Paige Nelson. “We got it un June.”

She is talking about the church’s new trailer.

“I posted it on social media as soon as we found out or we figured it out,” she says. “When I talked to the case lady at the desk at the police department, I know it is a slim chance of getting it back.”

The church bought the trailer for $4,000. In just four months, it’s been used on two mission trips to Tennessee and Texas. All that’s left is a broken lock.

“The kids will be like who would do that to a church? Sadly, for me, because I have been here awhile it does not always surprise me. But still how could people do it any way? I mean don’t take something that is not yours,” says Nelson.

Nelson put a post out on Facebook..

“A lot the kids put the emoji mad faces,” she says.

Hoping it will help them find it or maybe even compel someone to return it.

“You know if someone saw something weird in the neighborhood this weekend,” she says.
