Seeking clues for missing snowmobile

Dear Editor:

On Friday, Nov. 11, at about 4 p.m., I was moving a truck full of equipment on Owl Creek Road. Just before the big timber gate to Mandalay, the load shifted. I had to leave a pull-behind snowmobile trailer off the side of the road. When I returned five minutes later the trailer was gone. The sled is all black, with two skids and a powder-coated black frame.

My hope is that someone saw it, and thinking it was lost property, took it for safekeeping. I would hate to think about the implications for our community if this is not the case. I have alerted the snowmobile community so they can help whoever found it find the owner.

If you have the sled or have any information, please give me a call at 618-9968 or at Sunny Ranch 923-6567. I would be glad to pay a reward for the trouble. Please help me get my faith in the people of Pitkin County back.
