The Hawaii Red Cross said its disaster pickup truck was stolen early Thursday morning from its Diamond Head headquarters.
The 2000 Nissan Frontier truck is white with Red Cross logos. The license plate number is AB308.
Red Cross officials said the truck is needed for disaster response. They are also concerned that whoever stole the truck could be misrepresenting themselves as Red Cross staff or volunteers.
They are asking the public to call 911 if anyone sees the white truck.
This is the second time a Red Cross vehicle has been stolen.
On Aug. 6, the organization’s only Big Island disaster truck was stolen from the Red Cross office in Hilo as authorities were preparing for Tropical Storm Iselle’s imminent arrival.
The truck was found a day later in Papaikou with silver spray paint over the Ford F-150’s Red Cross logos. It was operational and workers were able to use it to deliver supplies and conduct assessments after Tropical Storm Iselle made landfall over Puna.
