Stolen Pick-Up Found Thanks to Drawing

Zaira Salazar Medina had a bad day last week. Her pick-up truck was stolen.

Medina lives in Sonora, Mexico and had no photographs of her ’91 Nissan.

No worries. She drew one. And social media picked up on it…

“It’s gray with a black roof,” Salazar explained, pressing her pencil a little harder to make the roof appear a shade darker. “If you see it, please call me.”

The drawing was featured in memes…the truck was “sighted” frequently…and theories on who took off with her truck ran rampant.

Or was it taken by kids to use in a local drag race?

Some thought it wasn’t stolen, merely towed

It got towed

Some thought it wasn’t stolen, merely towed. Others suggested it had gotten a paint job. Still others thought she should forget about the old Nissan and opt for a new Chevy. One guy even turned her drawing into a Matchbox truck.

The number of memes appeared to overwhelm Medina, who at last report closed her Facebook account as a result.

But, in the end the drawing appears to have been successful in saving the day.

The pick-up truck has been found and returned to Medina according to Mexican media.
