HONOLULU (AP) - The Hawaii chapter of the American Red Cross says a disaster truck has been stolen from the organization's Honolulu office.

The Red Cross says the white 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup truck was stolen sometime early Thursday from their office on Diamond Head Road.

A police report has been filed for the stolen truck, which has Red Cross logos on it.

Red Cross officials worry those who stole the truck may be posing as Red Cross staff or volunteers.

Another Red Cross truck was stolen in Hilo last month as a storm approached the Big Island. It was later found with the logos painted over. It's the island's only emergency truck and is being used for post-storm recovery efforts in hard-hit Puna, where residents are now bracing for approaching lava.
