Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali’s Twitter feed is full of mentions of his burgeoning career as a rap singer.

On Thursday night, Hali had some happy new to announce: he would be performing at the Liberian entertainment award show in Atlanta.

But Hali, who just finished his 13th season with the Chiefs, had some bad news to share on Friday morning. His car had been stolen.

“So I woke up to my white Mercedes ML 350 stolen downtown Kansas City Westport to be specific. If you see pls report thanks,” Hali tweeted.

Hali retweeted a local radio station’s plea for people to be on the lookout for the Mercedes.

Less than an hour after his first tweet, Hali tweeted that he had tracked the car to Warrensburg, Mo., thanks to a Mercedes app.

Just before noon, came some good news for Hali.

He tweeted: “Thanks everyone the car has been found by the police.”
