UPDATE: 6:55 p.m.

A happy ending to a reported theft of a custom canine-carrying trailer in Penticton.

Less than 90 minutes after Penticton RCMP asked for help to find a stolen trailer, which belonged to a resident who specially made it to transport her two dogs, the trailer has been found.

"Thanks to Facebook and Castanet viewers the bike trailer/dog carrier was recovered in the 200 block of Main Street shortly after the story hit the media," Penticton RCMP said in a news release.

The owner of the trailer said she is "profoundly grateful" to have it returned. The trailer was reported stolen just before 8 a.m. on Saturday from a home on Dynes Avenue.

Police said several suspects were questioned in the area when the trailer was located, and said they are continuing to investigate.

ORIGINAL: 4:55 p.m.

Police in Penticton are asking for the public's help to return a stolen bicycle trailer to a resident who uses it to transport his dogs.

Penticton RCMP said the trailer was reported stolen just before 8 a.m. on Saturday from a residence on Dynes Avenue. 

The trailer is "sorely missed," by its owner, police added. The owner said he had it specially made for his two dogs Ash and Bran to ride in.

"Thirteen-year-old Ash is a retired therapy dog who has, through the years, brought much joy and comfort to people. Especially to elementary school children in reading programs," the owner said.

"The trailer is not just for fun... I would really appreciate any help in getting this back."

Anyone with information on the bike trailer's whereabouts is asked to call Const. Ian Wolchok at 250-460-2472, or the RCMP detachment at 250-492-4300.
