FLORENCE, Ore. -- The owner of the 1955 blue Chevy discovered it missing on Feb. 13 and believes the car is still in Florence, possibly hidden in a trailer.

Barbara Rowland said thieves stole the restored classic car from a barn near Highway 101.

Rowland said the fence around the property had a hole in it from an unrelated incident and that's likely how thieves were able to remove the car.

The thieves probably spent hours at the barn before driving off with the car, she said. Whoever stole the car had to move other vehicles and use a floor jack to get the Chevy out of the barn.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Lane County Sheriff’s Office at 541-682-4150.
