A group traveling from New York to compete at Cobo Hall is stranded after someone stole the truck they drove in Sunday.

The group said the truck was stolen from a nearby hotel sometime on Friday night. They traveled to Detroit to compete at the Shell Eco Marathon America's at Cobo Hall, they say.

"It's a red Dodge Ram 2500; it's a big truck," said Sahr Bundor.

Bundor said they ignored the fact they had no way home, and focused on the competition. They accepted a third place win, and will travel to London for the next round.

"We have a couple friends on speed dial waiting to figure out exactly what's going to happen," Bundor said. "Unfortunately, we've been working so hard that we haven't really focused on that."

If you recognize the truck, or know where it may be, call Detroit police.
