An unfortunate mix up has happened that has left a Paralympian missing his prosthetic leg and snowboard gear. In an attempt to get it back, the athlete's sister has reached out to the online community on Reddit in order to find the bag that was lost at the Calgary airport. American snowboarder Joe Pleban was on his way to Kelowna when he had a stop at the Calgary airport.\nDuring his stop on Sunday night, his black Burton bag went missing. The bag was holding his gear, several different snowboards, and his snowboard boots.\nBut those weren’t the only important items in the bag. Inside the snowboard bag was also Pleban’s prosthetic leg.\nPleban’s sister has since put out a call to the public on Reddit in an attempt to find the missing bag.\nThe post explained that her brother is a Paralympic professional snowboarder for the U.S. team.\nHe was on his way to Kelowna to compete in a competition when they arrived at the Calgary airport to find that the bag was either stolen or accidentally taken.\n“This bag not only contained several boards but also his prosthetics for his leg. This is his livelihood,” writes the Reddit post.\nFollowing the unfortunate mishap, Pleban has allegedly filed a report with Air Canada.\nView this post on Instagram EXCITED to announce I now have a website!
