This just in from Harry Manx, who endured a nightmare at Chicago’s O’Hare airport. All ended happily:

Beloved friends, My Veena Has Been Found! On Monday the 24th, the man who stole my Mohan Veena at Chicago O’Hare Airport was caught while trying to steal more luggage. He eventually gave up the location of the instrument and it was recovered.
The police now have it in their possession. I plan to return to Chicago next Tuesday to pick it up. There’s no way for me to express the gratitude I have to everyone for helping out, but I would like to say that the generous outpouring of support has uplifted my spirits and renewed my faith in the kindness of strangers. love to all, in gratitude.

Do be careful out there.


  • It’s truly great to read these recent stories of successful recovery of stolen instruments.

    I had a PIANO stolen from my house in 1978. It was never recovered.
