Stolen  Preserved Optare Delta G254 JYG   Stolen 

At some time between 1200 on Thursday 15th March 2012 and 

1200 on Saturday 17th March 2012, preserved 
Optare Delta G254 JYG 
was stolen from the farm building it was stored in (in the York area).
  This vehicle is owned by Transport Yorkshire Preservation Group Ltd, and was formerly FirstGroup 60018 and is the only surviving Optare Delta that was delivered to Yorkshire Rider.

If anyone has seen this vehicle since Thursday, please could they share this information with 
us. If desired, anonymous reports can be made at http://www.typg.org.uk clicking 'contact us'.  
We have reason to believe it now may be elsewhere in the country (potentially at a scrapyard,
either licenced or unlicenced). Alternatively, please dial 101 (15p flat rate to call from any phone including mobiles), ask for North Yorkshire Police, quote 'inc number 121200 44085' and give whatever information you can.

A photo of the bus taken on Thursday is at

- this is the last time we saw her.

Any information even if vague would be appreciated.  Thank you in anticipation
