(NEW YORK) — American Airlines has found the luggage belonging to Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis, after she took to Twitter Thursday calling out the company for losing luggage containing some important equipment.

Haslet-Davis, a professional dancer, lost her leg in the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013. She tweeted Thursday evening that the airline lost a bag containing her prosthetic leg and dance parts, valued at over $250,000.

Haslet-Davis asked American Airlines to please respond, which it did, first tweeting, “We’re doing all possible to get you and your bag back together again.”

The company followed up overnight: “We’re sorry this happened. Her bag has been located and we will reunite her with it as soon as possible.”

Haslet-Davis’ original tweet had been shared by over 100 people, many of whom slammed American Airlines while also calling on news media to publicize Haslet-Davis’ story.

Haslet-Davis had shared a positive note with those who have followed her story and have tried to help.

Update; no update. Yet I love, & appreciate, & this shows an example o how we can all rise above what happened & solve! @AmericanAir
