Professional dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis was not happy when she took to Twitter to complain that American Airlines had lost her prosthetic leg.

Haslet-Davis lost her lower leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. She continues on as a ballroom dancer with the help of a $250,000 fake limb, which failed to arrive with Haslet-Davis.

It was not clear where her baggage was found.
