The bride-to-be reported the theft to police but is hoping it can be tracked down with the help of social media. Already, Hurst's post pleading for the dress's safe return has been shared more than 6,000 times on Facebook.

"It's nice to see that people are willing to reach out. They say we're all looking for you on Facebook and on these websites to see if anyone is going to post it. It really means a lot because I can't do it all myself."

Hurst plans having her wedding next fall and is looking forward to making new memories by dress shopping for a new dress with her mom and grandma.
