TULSA - A mother just one day away from giving birth to a baby boy woke up to a startling crime, Tuesday morning. 

 “His name is Bennet, we’re so excited," said Tulsa resident Ashley Thurman. 

The crib is up, and the wagon for his infant pictures already waiting on him. 

But unfortunately the birth of already 7-pound Baby Bennet is overshadowed by a selfish crime. 

“He called me he said 'Where are you?' And I said, I’m home what are you talking about?”

Her boyfriend noticed her black Chevy Tahoe was missing Tuesday morning. 

“And I said, 'Babe I’m home I don’t know what you’re talking about.' And he said, well your car’s not here.”

She came outside to the spot she locked it and parked it in last night. 

“My first thought was that it got stolen.”

Glass on the ground, it was obvious to her what happened. 

The Tulsa Police Department confirmed it responded to the home Tuesday morning and took a report.

Ashley posted photos of it to Facebook hoping someone will spot it. 

The truck uniquely fit with a dent and yellow paint on the front bumper. 

“We just cleaned out the car yesterday, we were so happy. We put the car seat base in the car ready for the hospital, to bring my baby home.”

Now, sitting in her living room among new baby supplies, she struggles to find a reason to smile; Leaving a message to whoever may've done this. 

 “Take whatever you want out of it, keep the rims, just give me my car back.”

Later Tuesday evening Ashley took her older boys Trick or Treating while having her first few contractions. 

She hopes along with Baby Bennet's expected arrival Wednesday, someone will find it in their heart to bring it back.
