Missing Haitian relief supplies turn up

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Police say an investigation into missing Haiti donations in Bedford-Stuyvesant was simply the result of a miscommunication.

Christopher Ellis, who has been gathering clothing, food and water for the quake-relief effort, says at least 15 boxes with about $1,500 worth of goods turned up missing Wednesday.

Police soon found out that the items had been picked up by the Bedford Haitian Community Center for shipment to Haiti and never notified Ellis.
