Three trophies designed by Kim Taylor Reece were stolen from the Island Tumblers Gymnastics facility in Waipio this weekend, and the gymnasts are asking for the public's help in getting them back.

The trophies were believed stolen Saturday, when the facility was open.

Island Tumblers co-owner and head coach Kari Schaap thinks someone just walked in and took them.

She said one Reece trophy was left behind.

The trophies are expensive, but Schaap said it's their "sentimental value" that's most important.

"These kids work all year to go in and win," she said. "We want them back, no questions asked."

The trophies are for team gymnastics competitions, for youth 8 to 17, within the last three years.

Schaap wasn't sure of their worth, but she said they are prized.

She said the trophies were sitting on a shelf with others, and were located in the facility.

Schaap also believes whoever took the trophies probably visited the facility before.

Anyone with information on the trophies is asked to call Schaap at 778-3954.
