Missing tortoise found

East Albany, Vermont - April 23, 2010

A giant tortoise that was stolen from a home in East Albany has been recovered.

The 19-year-old, 110-pound African tortoise disappeared two weeks ago from its pen on Peter Lowry's property. Lowry is a tropical bird and reptile breeder.

Lowry called WCAX News Friday to report that the tortoise is back home. He was contacted by people who had acquired the tortoise from someone else and didn't know it was stolen.

Vermont State Police are still investigating the case.
