Fort Bliss Commanding General Dana Pittard is looking for help in finding a family heirloom.

"I am still looking for the lady to whom I mistakenly sold a family heirloom Bible last month at a yard sale. The nice lady was driving a gray/silver Mercedes Benz sedan," Pittard wrote in his column in the Fort Bliss Monitor.

Maj. Gen. Pittard is in a bit of trouble over the mistake.

"I am still in the dog house over that Bible! Please call me at (915)744-6988 to return the Bible or come to the yard sale at my house (302 Sheridan Road on Fort Bliss) this Saturday, May 4th. Thank you!" Pittard wrote.
