Here’s the Story…

On or about 10:15 on the evening of August 12, 2019 the French horn was left either in the hatch of a 2018 Subaru Outback, or possibly, on the pavement directly behind the car and between two parked cars. At the time, the owner ultimately presumed it to have been taken to his apartment by a family member. When its absence was noticed the following morning, and no trace of it found at the spot where it was last seen, it was presumed taken, and duly reported to the police at the 24th Precinct.

The instrument is a vintage horn of rare provenance, and is irreplaceable to its owner, who seeks its recovery – No questions asked.
