Gold medals stolen from the car of three-time Paralympic champion Jen Lee have been found.

The goaltender's vehicle was broken into in San Antonio last week, with a bag containing three Paralympic gold medals stolen.

The backpack was recovered and the medals separately returned to a fire station, Lee said when offering an update on social media.

However, Lee also revealed the medals were not yet back in his possession "as the case remains open".

Lee was second-choice goaltender for the United States Para ice hockey team behind Steve Cash at Sochi 2014 and Pyeongchang 2018 before taking over as starter at Beijing 2022.

A 16-save shutout in the 5-0 final win over Canada was the highlight of Lee's Paralympic Games earlier this year.

The US only conceded one goal all tournament, which occurred when Lee was not on the ice.
