CCTV will catch caravan thieves
HUNDREDS of Facebook shares and grainy CCTV footage have buoyed Amy Colling's hopes that she will see her beloved family caravan again.
The 1986 Viscount caravan was stolen from Powers Rego and Mechanical, in Bent St, South Grafton about 2.20am on Wednesday.
Miss Colling said CCTV footage captured in the area showed the offender/s hooking the caravan up to what appeared to be a two-toned Mitsubishi Pajero.
"It was fully locked, so you couldn't just tow it away," she said.
"Whoever has done it sussed it out and figured out what they needed to do to it."
Miss Colling said she and her partner had intended to sell the uninsured caravan, but said it was still heartbreaking to have something so valuable stolen.
"That's a big chunk of money to have something like that stolen," she said.
"When I think about how hard he works and the fact it was such a good van for us for so long, it's heartbreaking really.
"It just would have been nice to know it was going to a family who would've enjoyed it."
Police investigations are continuing and a post on Miss Colling's Facebook page, Amy Cakes, has been shared more than 200 times, reaching more than 8500 people.
"I'm hopeful that the sharing of the picture on Facebook might lead to something," she said.
"It's very uplifting to know people want to help.
"Hopefully it reaches somebody who knows something."
The caravan has been described as white on the bottom, and yellow on top, with the number plate M45163.
