Woman sick after seeing group pose with her stolen car on Facebook

When a woman's car was stolen in Milwaukee, she decided to go out and find it herself -- never imagining that she would find a photo of a group posing with her car on Facebook.

Michelle, who declined to give WITI-TV her last name, said she went on Facebook to ask for help and was sickened when she came across a photo on Saturday.

"My heart sank," Michelle said. "I was like, physically ill."

Shortly after posting a plea for help to locate her vehicle on Facebook, Michelle received a response. A user contacted her with a photo of a car that looked familiar to that pictured in Michelle's plea and asked if the car belonged to her.

The photo showed a group of people standing on vehicles -- including hers -- accompanied with the caption: "Just living life."

"It made me so angry. So, so angry to see that," she said. "I can see my car in a picture. You can see these peoples' faces and two other vehicles in it."

"I said this car has been stolen. If you see it, please contact MPD,'" she said.

Michelle alerted police and her vehicle had been recovered in Milwaukee's east side on Monday.

"To see that it was in one piece was a huge relief," Michelle said.
