Couple's car stolen in Richmond on baby's due date

A young Richmond couple is worrying on the day their baby is due. Their car was stolen. Inside new baby clothes, a car seat and everything they need for delivery day.

"My husband was ready to go to work as normal and came back in and couldn't find the car," says Annah Zukoski of Richmond.  

They learned their car was missing around 6:00 a.m. Thursday.  The couple’s first thought the car was towed away.

"Sometimes if you don't have the parking permit they will tow your car, but I had my parking permit," says Franklin Lloyd of Richmond. 

They later found out the car was stolen. Lloyd recalled he parked the car around 7:00 p.m. Wednesday.  A neighbor later told the couple the car wasn't in the space when she came home around 11:00 p.m.  Although losing the car is a major issue they say what's inside the car set them back.

"We had everything in the birthing bag. The heating pad, the inflatable birthing ball," says Lloyd.  "The car seat, the go bag, his onesie we were hoping to take him home in," says Zukoski. 

Police are looking for the missing vehicle when CHP heard about the theft and decided to help out.  "Here's a new car seat for you guys to use if you guys either get your car back, your set, or you can put it in another car" says CHP Officer Sean Wilkenfeld. 

With the baby due any moment now, the couple is asking you help them get their car back. The car is a 1997 white two-door Toyota Celica with CA license plate 7RTT985.  If you know anything about this case you're asked to call police.

There is a gofundme for the couple with a goal of $2,000.
