A big thanks to Mark Enos, the man that recovered my stolen chainsaw!
Above is a photo of a much appreciated citizen, Mark Enos. Mark Enos was a Fireman before his on-the-job permanent injuries were sustained. Further below details a theft that only required one good man to turn this into a happy ending.
As a mom of 4 pursuing my first degree in college, free time is limited.
I rely on my laptop to complete my classes via the web in the evenings.
Like most, all of my pictures are stored on my computer (births, milestones, vacations, soccer games, etc.)
I am not interested in involving the court system; I just need my computer back.
On September 17, 2017 at 2:30pm my family and I were traveling home from a week-long vacation in MI.
We stopped at McDonald's (a rarity) in Sidney, OH to eat and stretch. Upon returning to our car, the passenger side door was unlocked.
At first, we thought nothing of it, but upon driving away the child safety locks engaged, the passenger door lock vibrated, made a terrible jamming sound, and refused to lock.
We were back on the road at 3:00pm.
Upon arriving home approximately 3 hours later, we discovered my Macbook Pro was nowhere to be found.
It became evident that it was stolen from our car while were eating.
We called the police and filed a report.
The officer instructed me to call pawn shops around town. I did so, but was more or less given the runaround.
I also took it upon myself to call repair shops. (And by some fluke, stumbled upon Springfield's Computer Repair.)
My oldest son is required to access all of his school assignments via the web, as he attends a cyber school program.
Without this computer, he is unable to complete his work without distress.
We are a family of six on one income.
Purchasing another computer is not an option for us at this time.
I have made the choice to go back to school and complete my degree. While it's an investment in my family's future, it is financially straining for us.
Photos contained on the laptop
When I was 14, my mother died suddenly and all of my childhood photos were lost forever. For this reason, I take pictures of everything my young adults do. Every trip we take, every soccer game, every swim meet, random afternoon walks, milestones, the sweet and peaceful home births of my last two babies, my wedding (that grandma attended just before she passed away), quiet and profound moments I never want to forget. I even take my kids' yearly school photos.
I do not have the opportunity to look at childhood pictures of my siblings, myself as a child, or my mothet before she died. But I don't want my young adults to lose the opportunity of reminiscing their childhood; reassessing the images as they get older.
Anything else? Contact me directly at the number listed below.
My computer's shift button tends to stick.
On the bottom of my laptop, there are four black, circular nonstick adhesives (standard), one is missing.
There is a DVD in the laptop.
It is password protected and is in lock-mode.

There were two men that arrived with a jailhouse tablet (yes, some prisons allow inmates that can afford the purchase of a overpriced limited tablet). Their request was that I recover the data from the locked tablet and that they would return the following day for the item. Neither men were able to give me a phone number and expressed that they were in a hurry to go rent a chainsaw. I replied that if they were coming back the next day as they has already stated, that they could go ahead and borrow my chainsaw.
They never returned.
One of the Theives:
*images removed by poster
(image removed) This is one of the two thieves of the chainsaw.
His name is x x
He has a prison inmate number xxx and has been recently released from his cell (about a year?).
I called the parole board and received this reply: xx
I called the police and filed a report.
Officer x. xxx #xxx took the report.
It's a two-stroke engine.

To add your stolen or missing property on this website, please refer to the email located at the bottom of this web page.
Post your loss here for free.
List photos and a story on how the lost, seized, or stolen item came to be missing property. The more you can state about the item the more you have a chance of recovering it (Add every detail, every scratch, oddity, every dent, anything that might possibly identify the unit as yours), The more photos you add will also increase your chances of recovering the lost or stolen item.
Even bad guys will do the right thing to appease their guilty consciences. Nobody wants their grandparents, siblings, friends, co-workers, etc. to find out that they have stolen something. LET'S PUT THE SHAME BACK INTO THEFT rather than rely on the forced-establishment (police and such) to do it for us. Let's face it, police auctions did not become truly profitable without un-returned merchandise and is akin to money-laundering or racketeering (it would have been better had they given their un-earned booty to the poor or rightful owners as opposed to capitalizing on the merchandise). amen.
SO DO BOTHER to post your loss! It's only a matter of time before the truth of a matter will be found out (but it requires that you take the first initiative).
Once completed, since you will have already listed your item here, head on over to another site and paste your information there also. The following site is more published and also allows for citizens to take a proactive approach toward recovery: stolen911.com
