Woman’s stolen RV with precious mementos from deceased husband inside found

DENVER -- A woman visiting from Florida got her stolen RV back early Wednesday morning.

The RV contains precious mementos commemorating her husband of 45 years who died.

Dawn Piers parked the RV on the street in front of her son's home in Denver overnight Sunday and made sure it was locked. When she got up, it was gone.

"It means a lot to us. It may just be monetary to them, but it’s heart to me," said Piers.

Piers' husband of 45 years died three years ago. The two had planned to retire and travel the country in an RV together. Now Piers is continuing that dream on her own.

"It seems like it’s part of me. Especially after three years. I have done over 40,000 miles on my RV. I have gone ocean-to-ocean twice," said Piers.

Inside the RV is Piers' wedding ring as well as a walking stick that matched her husband's that the two took on all their hikes together for more than 40 years.

The bright red 2015 Winnebago Travato was found late Tuesday night and Piers got it back about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.
