The Waffler food truck has been located. Mystery solved.
Owner Russell Viers recently took to Facebook to report that his truck, known for providing Liege Waffles to his legion of hungry customers, was stolen from a garage tasked with replacing its starter.
What made matters worse, Viers said he had shelled out $1,300 on new tires for the mobile meal machine.
But worry no more.

On Friday, Viers jumped back on Facebook and posted the following message:
I will report more when I know it, but MEGGO2 was FOUND 20 blks away from the garage in KCK. Some equipment stolen, but nothing that isn't easy to replace.
Thanks to everyone for the concern and shared amazement in the idiocy of stealing a titanic of a red truck.
The Waffler customers are the BEST!! Thanks again!
In an earlier Facebook post, Viers proclaimed that he would be open this weekend despite the theft. The family owns a second truck.
“NOTHING stops The Waffler and The Son of The Waffler,” Viers wrote.
