OZARK — Christian County authorities are trying to find out who took the county's emergency response supply trailer during flooding in southwest Missouri over the weekend.

The white 14-foot Doolittle trailer was stolen Sunday evening as it was parked outside a warehouse in Ozark. It has a green "CERT" logo on the side. The contents were later found scattered along a road in Branson.

Phil Amtower, the county's emergency management director, said video surveillance showed a dark minivan parked near the trailer for several minutes. A whitelate-model, single-cab pickup later arrived, hooking up the trailer and leaving with it.

The Springfield News-Leader reported that the trailer and training supplies were purchased through Homeland Security grants. The trailer is valued around $5,000.
