IMPERIAL, MO – A Jefferson County family already in pain, now has to deal with another blow.  In March 2017, Steve Welker passed away leaving behind a wife and twin 16-year-olds.

This past weekend the family took the truck to a body shop in Imperial Missouri for an estimate to repair some damage on the vehicle.  Sometime over the weekend the pick-up was stolen off Zieglers Automotive lot.

The family has been devastated by the theft.  For Cole, the truck embodied his memories of his father.

The family is offering a $3,000 reward for the return of the truck.
