UPDATE: FedEx Finds Blues Players’ Missing Luggage
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – On Friday morning the St. Louis Blues issued an all points bulletin for three team bags belonging to three Olympians.
The team says 21 pieces of luggage belonging to Blues players David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Alex Pietrangelo were picked up by FedEx in Newark, New Jersey on February 26th, but only 18 arrived in St. Louis.
The Blues called FedEx, but the bags weren’t found. Dan O’Neill, the assistant director of media relations for the team, sent an email Friday morning hoping to get the word out about the missing bags, and to add some urgency to the search process. A few hours later, O’Neill emailed letting the media know the bags had been located.
FedEx located the missing bags and they will be delivered Monday or Tuesday.
Of particular concern were items in Backes’ bags – he had several Team USA signed items he had planned on using to raise money at a charity event later this month.
