ALBQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Kansas couple who recently lost a son to a California hiking accident says their son’s ashes were stolen from an Albuquerque motel parking lot.

KRQE-TV reports (https://goo.gl/IhTMMA) that Steven and Kathy Hunt reported the theft on Monday.

They had stopped to rest at a Hampton Inn in Albuquerque after picking up their son’s remains in California. That’s when they say someone broke into their son’s car and stole the ashes.

The car was attached to a moving truck.

Authorities say the couple’s 32-year-old son, Kyle, was killed in a hiking accident two weeks ago.

The couple was on a 1,500 mile trip back to their small hometown in Wamego, Kansas.

Albuquerque police are investigating the case.
