TUCSON - Franklin Lane was walking in the Tanque Verde wash when he found two crosses that looked out of place.
The good samaritan was concerned for these misplaced roadside memorials and wanted to return them to their owners.
With the help of News 4 Tucson staff, Lane was connected with the mother of Brad Gorman, a cyclist that was killed cycling up the Mt. Lemmon Highway in 1999.
The Gorman family built the metal cross to memorialize their late son but thieves kept stealing them. They went so far as to secure the cross in concrete, but it didn't help. Gorman said 6 crosses were taken from the spot along Catalina Highway, so she was grateful for Lane returning it.
The final cross still needs a home and Lane is dedicated to returning it to the family of Melissa Rodriguez Garcia.
Garcia was killed by a drunk driver in 2004 at Speedway and Kolb.
