FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan man says his family's 5,000-pound footbridge has been recovered after being stolen from his property in suburban Detroit.

Robert Cortis filed a police report Wednesday saying that a 40-foot bridge made of steel and wood was stolen from his property in Farmington Hills.

Cortis says he discovered the bridge was missing when he stopped by his property near 8 Mile Road with plans to move the bridge this week. He planned to set it up at his catering business for taking wedding photos.

Cortis says the bridge has sentimental value because his father built it decades ago.

The Detroit News says police on Thursday found the bridge undamaged in Belleville, about 20 miles south of where it disappeared. There's no word of suspects.
