BOSTON (AP) — A professional dancer who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing says American Airlines lost her luggage, which included her prosthetic leg.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis tweeted Thursday night: "u lost my luggage w over $250k of leg & dance parts."

Haslet-Davis lost her lower left leg in the April 2013 attacks. She danced again publicly at a March 2014 TED Conference in British Columbia thanks to a prosthesis made for her at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab.

American Airlines spokesman Joshua Freed says it is "terribly sorry" for losing the bag and is working to get it back to Haslet-Davis as soon as possible.

Haslet-Davis tweeted Friday that her bag "went to a country I've never been to" and says the airline is trying to find it.
