Van stolen with body inside of it

- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is looking for a stolen van that was transporting a body in it when it was taken. 

Deputies say the 2006 silver Honda Odyssey was left running with the keys in the ignition when it was stolen. 

"The vehicle was transporting a dead body for work purposes when taken," the sheriff's office Tweeted. The van's driver left the van running to drop off paperwork, and when he returned, the van was being driven away, Action News Jacksonville reported.

The deceased man inside the van was in the rear of the van strapped to a cot in a body bag, JSO told Action News Jacksonville.

The sheriff's office is asking everyone to keep an eye out for the van with the Florida tag NIS5N. 

Anyone who spots the van should call 911.
