Does anyone have any idea where Fred's M1917 6T Tank went? It's sort of disappeared? Thanks

We were there about a month ago, and Lani Ropkey mentioned that the M1917 had been "sold to a private individual in Kansas" (don't know whether that was Kansas City or somewhere in the state of Kansas). Furthermore, I believe the museum is now closed (I think that the weekend of July 24-25 was the last time that it was open) and that the collection was being sold/returned (for items on loan).
Very sad, but I understand why it has to be.
