A single mom's van was stolen from a store in Missouri.  She remember that her husband's cell was still in the car, so she sent it a text and asked that the van be returned.

The text said something like "you just stole a single mother of five's only vehicle and you're ruining my life."  Around six hours later, the van still wasn't returned. So she sent another text and asked if the thief would just "drop it at Quick Trip."  The thief eventually texted back and told her where she could find it.

And she says that even if the thief was identified and caught, she wouldn't press charges.
