Dee Monday’s son convinced her it was a misunderstanding that would be cleared up in the morning.

It wasn’t.

When an older, beat up tow truck came to tow her son’s Kia Forte sedan Thursday night, Monday asked her son what was going on.

“My son said it was just a mistake,” said Monday, who noted the tow truck driver told them they would need to call their bank.

On Friday, they did just that. That’s when the news came: the payments were current. The bank hadn’t sent anyone to repossess the car.

“The car was stolen right out from under our noses,” Monday said.

Monday said her son’s car is a gray or silver Kia Forte four-door sedan with a 49ers emblem in the back window. She described the truck driver as being in his late 30s or early 40s, with a goatee and short hair. He was driving a white truck.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Keizer Police Department at 503-390-3713.
