Alex Moore and a group of friends from Anchor Point Community Church spent Thursday helping people in West Duluth with flood damage. They cleaned out debris, emptied basements and removed sand from yards.
Late in the afternoon, Moore realized that while he was working, his car had been stolen along with his wallet and cell phone. He had left the keys in the car under a sweat shirt, but thought it would be OK since he was parked on a dead end.
Moore heard late Sunday that the 1999 Plymouth Breeze had been recovered, although not in its original form. He said Tuesday afternoon that it was still being processed by the Duluth Police Department.
The setback hasn’t kept him from continuing to volunteer around the Twin Ports. He spent all day Saturday working at the Lake Superior Zoo.
“I’m always trying to maintain a good attitude,” he said. “My car is gone, but it’s better than my house being under water. I’m still fortunate compared to some people around here.”
Moore, 22, returned six months ago from doing mission work in South America, including Bolivia, where there was some landslide and flooding damage while he was there.
