DETROIT (CNN) — A stolen rental truck packed with equipment for a vice presidential Labor Day campaign event in Detroit was found on Monday, the Secret Service said.

Agency spokesman Ed Donovan said the U-Haul truck that disappeared on Sunday from the Westin Hotel was discovered by police near Henry Ford Hospital.

Some of the contents had been recovered earlier in the day in an abandoned house and the rest appeared to be inside the truck, Donovan said.

Donovan would not describe the gear, but a law enforcement official who did not speak for attribution said there were no weapons inside the vehicle.

Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a downtown rally organized by the Michigan AFL-CIO.
