TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -The postal inspection service is offering up a pretty hefty reward after a package was stolen from a Tucson woman’s doorstep. This wasn’t a Christmas present, it was something much more precious, a father’s ashes.
“This was the final step in the process of me saying goodbye to my dad and making the arrangements and sending him home here. And to know that he was so close and then taken. It just breaks my heart,” said Elyse Brink from her midtown neighborhood, near North Tucson Boulevard and East Grant Road.
Brink said her neighbor saw the package on her porch right after it was delivered on Tuesday but when Brink got home she found no note from the postal service and no package. She searched all around the area even in the trash cans, but the package was no where to be found.
