DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A metro Atlanta couple is hoping their prized Mexican guitar turns up somewhere after a thief stole it from a restaurant.

Surveillance video shows a man walking out of Los Bravos after the Fuentes family had finished their performance at the Decatur-area restaurant on July 31.

Sophia Fuentes tells WSB-TV (https://bit.ly/1Px3t1F) that her stomach sank when she saw the video. It shows the thief grabbing the instrument and then shoving it into a waiting vehicle.

Fuentes says she and her husband make their living playing music, but it has been difficult without the bass guitar known as a guitarrón.

The Atlanta station reports that the guitar is worth about $2,000 and typically takes two to four months to be built by hand in Mexico and shipped to the U.S.
