The Reno County Sheriff’s Office is seeking help to find a missing pickup truck that investigators believe has been stolen from one of the victims.

In a Facebook post on Friday, September 10, the sheriff’s office shared a photo of a red pickup with a silver trim. Investigators say they had been looking for a truck that they “believed to have been stolen” from the day the body was found.

The truck is a 2000 Ford F-150 expansion cab. The truck is red, has a silver bottom, and the bed has a silver toolbox. The sheriff’s office states that the Kansas veteran tag may have “65 BMW” on it.

When you see the truck, the sheriff’s office says you shouldn’t approach or touch it. Instead, call 911 or call Reno County Crime Stopper at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Investigation is in progress. No further information can be published at this time.
