Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8/CNS) - Chula Vista Police want the public's help in finding two people who may be connected to a stolen flute owned by a 12-year-old Chula Vista student.

A brass-colored Yamaha flute worth about $500 was inside a 2003 Honda Odyssey when the car was stolen on October 25, 2015 in the 700 block of F Street in Chula Vista.

The 12-year-old's mother, who owned the car, visited a pawn shop in Chula Vista to see if anyone attempted to pawn the flute. The pawn shop manager said a man who walked with a limp and a woman tried to sell the flute on October 26, 2015. The pawn shop manager refused to buy it determining it may have been stolen. The woman recognized her child's flute from surveillance photos the pawn shop manager showed her of the attempted transaction. The couple trying to pawn off the flute were seen getting into a light colored compact car.

According to the pawn shop manager, a different man wanted to sell the flute at his shop on October 28, 2015.

Police described the male suspect as white or Hispanic and 30 to 40 years old with thinning hair and a goatee. He was wearing a San Diego Chargers shirt and was carrying the flute case. The woman is white or Hispanic, 20 to 30 years old, has red hair and was wearing a black dress.
