DALLAS (AP) - Police have recovered a $2.5 million helicopter reported stolen when the seller in Texas lost contact with the driver hauling the chopper to a buyer in Pennsylvania.

KXAS-TV reports that the privately owned chopper was on a trailer located early Friday in the parking lot of a Dallas hotel. The 2002 Bell helicopter has been transported to the police auto pound.

Police are trying to locate the truck driver who was supposed to haul the helicopter from Fort Worth to Mount Pleasant, Pa.

A Fort Worth police report says the driver departed May 19, using a pickup to haul the 40-foot trailer carrying the helicopter, but a week later he stopped returning the seller’s phone calls. The helicopter was reported stolen Wednesday.
