Kenneth Jelley was just starting to come to grips with the fact that he may never see his 41-year companion again.
The Calgary man was heartbroken July 13 when Betsy, his beloved 1962 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, was stolen from outside his apartment in southeast Calgary.
But on Wednesday, Jelley was thrilled to receive a call from police that they’d recovered the classic car from an acreage in the De Winton area.
The car is being taken to the CPS forensics bay for further testing, and Jelley hopes to be reunited soon. It’s the only classic car he has ever owned and its been with him for decades, he said.
“It won’t be in my hands today or tomorrow,” he said. “The point is, it’s secure.”
