Transit police recover missing $40,000 violin

BOSTON (WHDH) — Transit Police confirmed that a $40,000 violin that went missing at South Station was located on Tuesday.

Violinist Amy Sims said she was at South Station having just returned from a rehearsal in Chicago. As she boarded the Silver Line, Sims said she realized she had left her violin behind.

Police shared a photo of a woman seen carrying the violin case at South Station. Later Tuesday, they said that woman was cooperating with the investigation and was no longer a person of interest.

“She probably didn’t realize the value of the instrument, or its importance to me in my making a living here as a freelance musician,” said Sims on Wednesday.

Sims was reunited with her prized violin on Wednesday.

7’s Steve Cooper spoke with Sims; watch the video above to hear from her.
