Megan Bratten of Independence, Missouri walked out of the K-Mart and found that her minivan was gone. She's a single mother of five kids, so money is tight. The loss of the van appeared to be a devastating blow.
Then Bratten remembered that there was a phone in the van. So she sent a text message to it, hoping that the thief would respond. He did and they had a conversation. After she sent a total of five texts, the thief agreed to give up the van. He gave her step-by-step directions to its location. Bratten found the van in good condition.
In fact, it was in even better condition. She had mentioned that the van had a bad transmission. When Bratten found the van, there was an empty bottle of transmission fluid in it. The thief had refilled the reservoir.
