BERKELEY -- A nonprofit is asking the public for help in finding a truck that vanished from its parking spot in North Berkeley over the weekend.

Kristen Van Dam, a senior ecologist for Urban Creeks Council, said she parked the 2005 Ford F-250 at the intersection of Rose and Arch streets at 6 p.m. Saturday. By the morning, it was gone, she said.

The Oakland-based nonprofit filed a police report Sunday at 8:30 a.m. but said the distinctive truck is still missing.

The blue Ford truck is lifted, and has "Urban Creeks Council" painted in white lettering on both sides of the truck, she said. The license plate is 7U05789.

The organization works to protect and restore urban streams and purchased the truck in October to haul plants to a project in Livermore, according to Van Dam.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Berkeley police department at 510-981-5900.
