Hundreds of missing FedEx packages found just in time for Thanksgiving

FedEx drivers “from all over the south” were drafted to clean up hundreds of missing packages found tossed into an Alabama ravine on Wednesday.

About 300 to 400 boxes of various sizes were discovered on the private property near Hayden, according to Facebook posts from the Blount County Sheriff’s Office.

They had not been there longer “than a day or two,” Sheriff Mark Moon told the WBRC.

Deputies secured the area and warned people against visiting the place.

FedEx trucks arrived on Wednesday to load the packages that were to be delivered by the company. All the boxes were found at 10.30am Thanksgiving, the WBRC reported.

Investigations into how the boxes ended up in the gorge are underway.

FedEx said in a statement to CBS 42, “the security of our customers ‘shipments is a top priority and we are committed to treating our customers’ packages with the utmost care.”

“We are taking steps to recover and transport the affected packages as soon as possible,” it read. “In addition to cooperating with law enforcement, we are conducting a review of this situation and will take the necessary steps.”
