COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Tonya and Jurmal Taylor lost their 7-month-old  daughter Angel two months ago. Her ashes and clothing were placed in the couple's white 1999 Viking pop-up trailer, parked near Highway 2 and East 67th Place in Commerce City.

“We thought that would be the best place to leave her remains because all of her other stuff is there," Tonya Taylor said.

Both are still stunned by the loss.

"It tears a part of your heart out," she said.

Three days ago, when the Taylors returned from work, they were shocked to discover the trailer was gone.

One witness said a white man in a cream-colored four-wheel drive truck hitched up the trailer and drove off with it, heading north on Highway 2.

“It was a coward move. I wouldn't understand why you would just come up and take someone else's property,” Jurmal Taylor said.

The couple placed an ad on Craigslist, hoping someone would provide information. There are no reports of the trailer being towed and no leads are surfacing.

Jurmal Taylor has an impassioned plea he hopes the thief will see.

"The trailer isn't what holds my heart, it's the remains inside the trailer that mean the world to me," he said. "If you can find it in your heart to bring that trailer back and drop it off I won't  press charges, I won't pursue you. Please give us our things back, please, I’m begging you.”

Anyone with information should contact the Commerce City Police Department.
