Our car was stolen last night between 1:00 a.m. and 9 a.m. from the area near Schmitz Park, up from Admiral. It is a 1995 Subaru Legacy wagon, “dusty rose” in color, AK license FMT190. It is a unique car in that it has a home made plywood blue box on top, although we’re aware that the thieves could have removed the box.
Our family is “stranded” here without the car, as we were leaving tomorrow to get a ferry in Prince Rupert on the 25th to return home. Really can’t afford plane tickets.
If anyone sees it or has seen it, please notify the police – or call 206-932-3953. (I hope it’s ok to use a phone number here?). We have filed a police report.August 20, 2010 at 9:13 pm #701906
I just saw this car and a maroon mustang parked on Murray Ave SW (Just north of Lincoln Park). I’ll call you in a second.August 20, 2010 at 9:40 pm #701907
Well, I called and spoke to Annie. I also tried to call the non emergency number of the SPD, but was told to call back in a couple of hours because of the “emergency situation in West Seattle” (likely http://westseattleblog.com/2010/08/traffic-alert-arbor-heights-police-negotiation-road-blocked).
I hope you get your car back!August 21, 2010 at 3:37 am #701908
We did get our car back and thank you so much for your call. It seems to be undamaged except for a broken padlock on the box and lots of camping gear strewn about. It is such a relief as we have to get on the road tomorrow in order to make the ferry in Prince Rupert.
wsgolfer, you are our hero! Nice looking dog you have, too.
Thank you again so much.August 21, 2010 at 3:59 am #701909
I’ll echo “thanks, wsgolfer.”
This is one of the reasons we run this site and remain continuously honored by the presence of so many caring people who use the Forums to seek help and offer it.August 21, 2010 at 4:09 am #701910
This is why I love West Seattle,
because of people like wsgolfer and WSB.
I am glad you got your car back Annie!August 21, 2010 at 5:29 am #701911August 21, 2010 at 5:45 am #701912August 21, 2010 at 5:53 am #701913
Annie, really glad you got your car back! Safe travels back to Alaska.
Was the other car parked next to yours stolen as well? Were they able to return it to its owner?August 21, 2010 at 3:24 pm #701914
The other car was not stolen, just illegally parked. The police said that it’s a common place for stolen cars to be left behind. We feel so lucky – it’s off to Alaska today (this was mostly written by my daughter, as it’s their car) and I’m so glad that their return was not put on hold while they searched for th car. Thanks again for your quick response.
Now I can be a poster and not just a reader on this blog since I had to get a new password that I can almost remember.August 21, 2010 at 4:22 pm #701915August 22, 2010 at 7:52 am #701916
Annie, as you were pulling on to the West Seattle Bridge going Eastbound today around 2:50pm, I was right beside you in a light green Subaru Forester. I wanted to wave since I knew your car from the description here but I figured you’d just think I was some nut. :-)
