OAK HILL, Tenn. - A trailer holding two all-terrain vehicles was stolen Sunday from the driveway of an Oak Hill home.

Country artist Chad Warrix, from the duo Halfway to Hazard, knew something was wrong as soon as he drove up his driveway just after 5:00 p.m. Sunday.

"There's a big void, only a space, with none of those sitting there, so it was easy to notice they were gone," Warrix explained.

The two customized Polaris RZR all-terrain vehicles were on a custom 22-foot trailer and parked in front of Warrix's home.

"And this was in the middle of the day, it's a little scary. My wife and kids were actually home," Warrix said.

There is a lot of construction currently taking place on his property, with different trucks moving about.

"Maybe they thought it would go unnoticed because we have so much traffic coming in with construction," Warrix said.

As soon as he noticed the ATVs were missing, he called police and then went to Facebook and Twitter.

"We are actually trying to utilize different social media aspects, and getting the word out, word of mouth with all of our friends and as much as we can to see if we can get a tip," Warrix explained.

They had gotten information to a lot of people in just a short amount of time.

"Five years ago it would been pretty hard to be able to click a couple of buttons and reach the amount of people we've been able to reach," said Josh Bleidt.

He and Warrix owned the stolen ATVs and contacted their friends in the sports and music industries to get the word out.

"We've had, between all the followers and all that stuff, a couple million impressions at this point. It's hard to say it's local, but the word is definitely out there," Warrix said.

Warrix was going to use the ATV's during his annual Crocketville charity event this weekend in Eastern Kentucky.

"We do this big, huge 40 mile ATV ride and get all the Storme Warrens, and the guys, all the VIP's and the celebrities. and get them muddy, which they really enjoy," Warrix said.

By Monday afternoon they had gotten a few tips from Facebook and Twitter followers, but no solid lead as to where the stolen trailer might be.
