It went missing from the area of township 624 and range road 480.
Later that day, the Mounties were in the Glendon area investigating a report of a white Kia Soul that was on private property and was involved in attempted theft of another vehicle. As they were conducting patrols they received another call of a stolen Red GMC Sierra in the vicinity. The members were able to locate the white Kia and the red GMC however the vehicles fled from police.
