Reported Missing When The Driver Transporting The Aircraft On A
Flatbed Truck Stopped Answering His Phone
It's not where you'd expect to find a helicopter, but Dallas
police say that a 2002 Bell 430 was located on a trailer in the
parking lot of a Dallas motel. The aircraft, worth a reported $2.5
million, was being transported to it's new owner in Pennsylvania
when it went missing.
The aircraft was reported missing and assumed stolen Thursday
night. It had been sold by a person in Colleyville, TX, to a
company in Pennsylvania, and a driver was hired May 19th to deliver
it to its new owner. But television station KDFW reports that the
driver stopped answering his phone on June 1st, and the alert was
issued to be on the lookout for the presumed-stolen Bell.
It was located at a Century Inn near the city, and a tow truck
driver was called in to haul it to the police impound lot, where it
apparently attracted a lot of attention.
Authorities say the driver who was hired to deliver the aircraft
reportedly "got sick" and was unable to continue his trip. They
said he is unlikely to be charged with any crime.
