UPDATE EDIT: Miracles do happen, Balam posted this morning that the stolen items recovered via a response to a Lost and Found post on Craigslist. The Anonymous tip provided an address and location and stolen properties were recovered
(original post September 15)
“The trailer to our van got broken into in #iowacity today and someone stole two of my guitars and my backpack with my Green Card (yes I’m an immigrant) and my Mexican passport. It’s a blue and black backpack. They also stole our tour manager’s backpack which is red and black (had his passport in there too) . Both guitars were in black hard cases. If anyone has any leads please message or call me! I really appreciate everyone who has reached out and shared my story so far ❤️ praying these things make their way back to us 🙏🙏🙏”
Balam described the two guitars stolen from the van in an instagram post:
In her Instagram story, Haley Reinhart revealed that more than the guitars were taken in the theft
Unknown if the items were insured but as Balam said in his Instagram post about the lost guitars, “This guitar is a part of me and I’m truly devastated that it got stolen.” Added Lo-Fi Soul Tour Bassist about the guitars lost, Zephyr Avalon,
“This one especially hurts to hear about…Very sentimental”
Distinct looking guitars, if you see them please contact the Iowa City Police, any tips are appreciated.
