BRADENTON, FL (WFLA) -

An Olympic gold medal was reported stolen from a car parked in a Bradenton apartment complex, according to police. 

Demetrius Pinder, a track and field Olympian, told police someone took his gold medal, valued at $42,000, from the center console of his car.

Pinder's car was parked in the 4600 block of 66th Street West. He won the medal with the Bahamas 4x400m relay team during the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Pinder told police when he got into his car Wednesday morning; he noticed papers from his console on his passenger's seat. When he checked inside the console, his 24-karat gold medal was gone.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-634-8477.
