OGDEN, UT — An ambulance stolen from the Ogden Fire Department early Sunday morning has been located.

An Ogden Fire Department crew had responded to a call for help early Sunday morning but could not transfer the patient to a hospital because they report that Ambulance 3 had been stolen.

The theft occurred in the area of 3rd Street and Washington Blvd, in Ogden. 

In a statement, Ogden Fire said that after police were notified they began tracking the ambulance.

They also elicited help from the public with a post on Facebook:

And it was a citizen that called 911 to report they’d seen an ambulance parked in a neighbor’s backyard.
