KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A 29-year-old woman from Atlanta, in Kansas City for her grandmother's funeral on Sunday, had her car stolen after she dropped it off with the valet at Isle of Capri Casino, she says.

"It's completely unbelievable," said Ta'Quela Blaylock.  "I was highly upset."

During her trip to Kansas City for the funeral, Blaylock says she got together with her cousin and her aunt. They went to Isle of Capri Casino, where they played slots for about an hour-and-a-half. When they stepped outside at about eight o'clock, they discovered her 2007 silver Volkswagen was gone.

Blaylock says casino security reviewed surveillance video and told her that they saw a man and woman hop in her Volkswagen and drive off. Her car was full of luggage.

"Complete strangers because they just brought up a ticket?" said Blaylock. "No further verification, just here's a ticket, so here's a car?"

To make matters more difficult, Blaylock is three months pregnant and now has no car. Her family is frustrated along with her.

"I don't know if they think that she's young, and you know, they're gonna get over. No. You're gonna get my daughter's car or get her a car and you're gonna get all of our stuff back," said Blaylock's mother, Helen.

An Isle of Capri spokesperson says they are aware of the situation, but cannot say anything else because it's a police matter. Police are reviewing the surveillance video, trying to track down the couple who drove off in Blaylock's car.
