    OKMULGEE, Okla. - Two brothers who work as Tulsa firefighters are searching for their John Deere tractor that they say was stolen from land they lease in Okmulgee.

    The alleged theft happened while the two were working their Thanksgiving shift with the fire department.

    They say they parked it Wednesday evening at the Okmulgee property, and when they got off work Friday morning, the tractor was gone.

    Tire marks show that the tractor was driven off the land, but they are not sure where it went after that.

    They have been in contact with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement agencies looking for the tractor.

    They only owned the tractor for less than 36 hours, and they say the tractor also had other equipment inside, including a GPS system.

    Owners estimate the tractor is worth at least $40,000.
