I hate thieves.

Agree with yanoer about checking scrap buyers.
Wouldn't hurt to check pawn shops.

Doubt thieves would do this, but check craigslist (canoes for sale) in Missouri for awhile. Lots of thieves are pretty dim bulbs.

Any local creeks, rivers, lakes, in the area where canoes were stolen? Might check accesses on those. Doubt thieves went paddling; probably stolen for quick buck resale.

Probably local kids, &/or tweakers; probably live closer to you than you know.
Bet within a 5 miles radius of your location, and knew beforehand canoes were stored where they were.

Good luck,
BOB

P.S. Generally speaking: "Don't make it easy for boat thieves". Write down boat serial numbers, take photos of boats, cable, or chain them to immovable objects. Compare cost of preventive measures to replacement cost of boats.........
