WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas woman says copper thieves made off with a $400 vase that adorned her daughter's gravesite at a Wichita cemetery, and police are checking to see if there might be other victims.

Kristie Trimble told KAKE-TV (http://bit.ly/1hKYkpA) she first noticed the vase was missing Monday when she visited Maple Grove Cemetery to make funeral arrangements for her mother.

Trimble's daughter, Amanda Honesty Star, was born Oct. 4, 1995, and died of cancer in May 1999. The vase with copper stripes was attached by a chain that someone had to cut through to steal it.

Wichita police spokesman Doug Nolte says anyone else who is missing items from gravesites is encouraged to call 911 and report it.
