CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Authorities are concerned about the disappearance of a CSX maintenance truck Monday from a CSX work area in Millville, W.Va., in light of Thursday's terrorist attacks in London, Jefferson County Sheriff Everett "Ed" Boober said.

The sheriff's department was notified of the theft of the truck about noon Monday, Boober said.

The maintenance truck is equipped with metal wheels, which allows it to be driven on railroad tracks, Boober said.

The truck is a 1998 Chevrolet with an extended cab, Boober said. It has a Virginia license plate number of TT58346, Boober said.

Boober said the truck was parked at a CSX work area in Millville, a small community along the Shenandoah River between Charles Town and Harpers Ferry, W.Va.

Boober said authorities are concerned of the whereabouts of the truck and who has the vehicle.

Officials especially are concerned because of the developments Thursday in London in which more than three dozen people were killed and hundreds wounded in bombings in the city's subways and on a double-decker bus.
