EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Kristen Shaulis was on her way to a job as a nurse in Alaska in March when her minivan was stolen in Everett.

Before police found the minivan, Shaulis had to head north in donated clothes. And, she couldn’t take time off from the new job to return to Everett to pick it up, so a volunteer with the Snohomish County sheriff’s office delivered.

Karl Myers of Everett arrived over the weekend at Metlakatla, a small town on Annette Island southeast of Ketchikan where Shaulis works at a tribal clinic.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/RPSqrB ) Myers met up with Shaulis and flew home Sunday night.

Myers says she’s grateful for all the help. Several Everett businesses repaired the minivan damaged ignition system at little or no cost.
