NEWCASTLE, Okla. -- A local church is left empty-handed after their trailer packed with donated items was stolen.

Members of Newcastle Christian Church were planning to distribute supplies to poor and orphaned children in Mexico. They're mission trip is November 9, and the trailer was already packed full.

"We had just loaded it with all of our contributions that had been given over the last year to take," Senior Minister Rod Reiger said.

The church has filed a police report, and continues fundraising for their trip.
