(KSL News) -- Police recovered the trailer stolen from a group that feeds the homeless every Sunday.

Someone took the trailer from a warehouse belonging to Eagle Ranch Ministries. A news viewer saw the story, saw the trailer, and called police.

The trailer's generator, PA system and propane assembly, are all missing.

Eric Burson, Eagle Ranch Ministries: "But the griddles, the steam tables, all the items we need to serve breakfast Sunday morning are there, and we'll be ready to go seven o'clock Sunday morning."

A Chuckwagon Trailer used every Sunday to feed several hundred needy people was stolen and the Eagle Ranch Ministries wants help finding it.

The trailer was parked at the Ministry warehouse. The tire blocks are still there, along with the hookups for charging power. Someone apparently pulled up, broke the trailer lock, hooked it up, and stole it from the Eagle Ranch Ministries at 1899 South Redwood Road.

This isn't just any white trailer, it carries all the grills, tables, cooking utensils --- everything but the food that volunteers need to serve the needy every Sunday. The Eagle Ranch Ministries has been serving the homeless and needy every single Sunday for 20 years.

Jennie Dudley, Eagle Ranch Ministries: "Everything that we do on Sunday morning when we unload to feed three, four, five-hundred people. And We've done that every Sunday, never missed a Sunday. And somebody said, 'You're gonna miss this Sunday.' I said, no we won't. Something will be put together if it isn't back by then, but it going to come back, somebody is going to see it somebody is going to see it."

It's a white, 32 foot Wells Cargo Trailer, with license number 66462L. It has a couple of distinguishing marks: on the left front corner it has a vent stack and on each side, down low, are propane vents.

If you spot it, call police so it can be returned.
