OKLAHOMA CITY -

There are new clues into who stole a huge Shriner Train. The train was parked in front of a home near Mustang the night before the fourth of July. But when the family woke up the next morning, it was gone.

The pickup truck that was pulling the train was also stolen. It was discovered abandoned alongside the road on Tuesday. But the train is still missing.

"We'd like it back because it's one of a kind for sure," said Calvin Gamble. The train was parked in front of his home.

Detectives are now analyzing surveillance video from cameras mounted on the front of Gamble's neighbor's home. It shows the truck pulling the train and following another car.

"It looked like a white two-door Monte Carlo," said Gamble

Gamble, who's actual job is a train engineer, was the one who discovered the pickup truck alongside the highway near 59th and I-44 Tuesday evening.

"Driving home from work and looked over and said that's got to be the truck so I turned around and went back and sure enough it was," he recalls.

The truck was in bad shape, with several dents. Trash in the back reveals the thieves may have been using it. But Gamble says it gives him hope.

"Maybe it will be a clue the train will be around here somewhere so we can still find it."
