The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is looking for two people who stole a USPS vehicle with people's mail inside last December.

According to USPS, the incident happened on Dec. 23 at an apartment complex near the area of 23rd Avenue and Happy Valley Road.

Authorities say a man and a woman took a personal vehicle belonging to a mail carrier, who was delivering mail at the apartment complex at the time of the theft.  

The vehicle, a white 2014 GMC Acadia was later found on Jan. 20 near the area of 31st Drive and Morten Avenue.
