A reader writes in about a backpack that was stolen out of a car. She is right that items like this are often discarded nearby. Have you seen this backpack?
I'm a frequent reader of the Frozen Tropics blog, and thought maybe you could help me out. My friend had his car broken into this weekend at 14th & D NE, at 10 AM on Sunday morning, and a neighbor saw them run off and called the cops. The neighbor identified one of the thieves as wearing a blue backpack. My friend just realized that the backpack was his, and the thieves took it from the car. I have a feeling that the backpack was likely ditched in an alley (since it would be easy to identify them if they kept carrying it). Can you send out a note asking if anyone has seen a blue backpack with a fairly nondescript pair of white shoes in it? They are worth a lot to my friend, but I doubt they would be to anyone else.
