Search on after U.S. Luge team sleds slide away in Pa.
EASTON, Pa. (AP) - February 21, 2013 (WPVI) -- The U.S. luge team's sleds went slip-sliding away.
Members of the U.S. Luge Team Association are seeking the public's help in finding their missing gear. They were returning to their hotel after training at an eastern Pennsylvania ski resort last Friday when five of their sleds fell out the back of the truck.
The Express-Times of Easton reports that by the time they'd realized what had happened, the sleds were gone.
A man in a black truck was seen picking up the sleds and driving off with them. Luge team spokesman Gordy Scheer says the man probably didn't think they belonged to anyone.
The training sleds cost $400 to $600 a piece.
Pennsylvania State Police are asking anyone with information about the sleds to contact the Bethlehem barracks.
