A motorcycle autographed by county music stars has been stolen in central Kentucky, where it was to be auctioned to benefit breast cancer research and prevention.

The 2010 Harley-Davidson Sportster was inside a locked trailer, which was secured with chains in the parking lot of the Lexington affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported the cycle had been signed by several country stars, among them Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Dolly Parton.

Employees of the charity noticed the trailer was missing on Monday and called police.

Komen chapter Executive Director Penny Gilbert says the group had hoped to raise about $100,000 Oct. 16 by auctioning items including the donated motorcycle.
