- A family of five says their truck was stolen during a surprise trip to Disney World.
- Cassidy McClendon said she filed a police report and the Orlando Police Department is looking for their truck, according to WOFL.
- “We were stuck in the hotel room all day. The kids were very upset,” McClendon told the local news station.
A family of five was left stuck in their hotel after their truck was stolen on a trip to Disney World along with their electronics and other valuables on Monday.
“We woke up the next morning to head out — to go to Disney — and the truck was missing,” Cassidy McClendon told local Florida news station WOFL. “So, we didn’t get to do anything. We were stuck in the hotel room all day. The kids were very upset.”
Cassidy and her husband Ryan told WOFL that they decided to surprise their three children and take them to Disney Worl in Orlando, Florida for a few days. The trip turned sour when the couple noticed that their white Ford F-250 was missing from the parking lot of the Comfort Suites where they were staying.
Cassidy McClendon wrote on Facebook that the truck had IPads, Apple Watches, an iPhone, car seats for the couple’s children, and a toolbox inside it that were also stolen. McClendon wrote that security cameras at the hotel showed the truck leaving the parking lot at around 1:51 a.m. on October 17.
“Unfortunately, there isn’t much the police can do, but it is reported as stolen,” McClendon wrote in the post.
McClendon told WOFL that she filed a police report and the Orlando Police Department is looking for the truck and the other valuables that were also stolen. The Ipads and Apple Watches that were in the truck are “disconnected now,” McClendon said.
“I’ve had a lot of people on Facebook, where I put the post, say that the same thing has happened to them,” McClendon told the station.
She said that the theft of their family truck and other belongings cast a shadow over what would have otherwise been a fun family vacation.
“We’ve been trying to take the kids to Disney every year and this definitely hit hard,” McClendon told the station.
