Associated Press Release

DAVENPORT, Fla. (AP) -- Central Florida authorities say a quilt made from the uniforms and mementos of a soldier killed in Afghanistan was stolen from his widow's front porch.

Brittany Frazier tells WFTV in Orlando that she didn't know what to do with her husband's uniforms after his death in 2009. They were married just seven months. Earlier this year, she sent the uniforms and some of Daniel Frazier's belongings to Wisconsin quilt-maker Lucy Salerno.

According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, a package from Salerno containing the finished quilt was delivered July 15 to Frazier's home in Davenport. However, it was stolen before Frazier could collect it.

Sheriff Grady Judd says deputies and K-9s have canvased the neighborhood for the quilt, which may have been discarded.
