INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — A single mother was able to get her van back from thieves – all she had to do was ask.

Megan Bratten ran into a suburban Kansas City store to pick up school supplies, and her van was gone when she came out.  The single mother of five remembered that her estranged husband’s cell phone was still in the van, so she sent a text – asking for the van to be returned.  A few hours later, it was returned.

Bratten says she’s so relieved, she won’t press charges.

Q13 FOX’s sister station WDAF-TV talked to her; you can see the video above.
